UK car drivers will spend, on average, 58 working weeks of their lives not moving in traffic on their daily commute, according to a new study of 2,000 car drivers by Continental Tyres.

Covering an average round trip of 28 miles the typical journey to work and home again takes 41 minutes, with 12 minutes lost every day in jams and delays. Even with annual leave, bank holidays and sick days this means 5½ working days lost every year or 58 working weeks during a lifetime.

According to another survey by the GetOn campaign, riding a motorcycle to work will cut your commute by 306 hours a year and save you almost £1000 when compared to a car. The facts speak for themselves.

What would you do with an extra 306 hours per year?
