We're getting close to the end of the school year, which could make everyone's mornings easier. Yes, even if you don't have kids.
A new study found that the roads are WAY more jammed in the mornings during the school year, and it's all because parents are taking their kids to school.
Check out these stats. . .
1. One in four cars in the morning is a parent taking their kid to school.
2. Traffic goes up by about a fifth during the school year.
3. Other drivers' commutes can be up to 15 minutes longer during the school year.
4. And morning rush hour accidents drop 43% when kids are out of school.
I rode the bus to school, and I turned out just fine. My mom was not about to eat up an extra 30-45 minutes of her morning driving me to school before she went to work...so to the bus stop I went. I love when summer time comes because I can get around town so much quicker...and then school starts again, and it's back to Slowville. That's to say nothing of the fact that being your kid's personal chauffeur is probably stressing you out!
Not to mention the car line is frustrating enough to make you want to give up driving completely! Stop the madness!
