How much time and money does your city’s traffic cost you?
It may feel like you spend half your life in traffic jams, but that’s just a delusion. According to this very spiffy – and highly depressing – infographic from Carbuzz, even Chicagoans are spending less than two percent of their waking existence staring at someone’s muffler.
There. Don’t you feel better now?
Even though it’s only two percent of their time, these delays cost drivers over $1,700 a year, so it’s easy to see why Chicago and D.C. have already invested in public transportation, and it certainly looks as if it would be easy to justify more of everything that isn’t a car.
