Just wondering who has the best and worst scenerio to get to work. Who's stuck in traffic for hours a day? Who drives the furthest? Anyone just merely cross the street?

I personally drive a ways to get to work, through good and bad weather on good and bad roads... but never in rush hour.

I have a 20min drive to the airport, then an hour and 20min flight on a nine seater Pilatus that lands on a gravel runway....spring and fall it can be a little exciting....nothing like watching a 6'4" 250LB miner deathgripping the seat in front of him. :D

I have a 45 minute drive everyday to get to the shop which isnt to bad. Then I have a drive that can be anywhere from 30min to 2.5 hours to get to where we are working that day. That drive can get interesting sometimes. Semi's down back country roads in the middle of winter is a little challenging at times :lol:.

I drive house to house for the most part. Through town and cutting people off in traffic.

When I work with the union it's normally a interstate drive to a plant in the area

15 minutes. Then I'm in the armored car all day so I'm going to add that in and say my commute is 8 hours and 15 minutes. :lol:

Being a service electrician may work day changes often, but my drive to the shop in the morning is about 20 minutes

I takes me 35mins on a good day leaving home around 6:15 am and getting to work in down-town Ottawa. If it's vacation time for most federal employees then it'll be the same amount of time going back home. Worst case scenario, Winter storm, 1:30hrs +. I only live 20 miles away and it's almost all highway.

I drive 5 miles to work, takes about 5 minutes. Only 2 traffic lights to worry about, and assholes that can't seem to drive at least the speed limit. I leave at 7:55am and walk in the door at work right at 8am.

It used to be 40 miles each way in rush hour bay area CA traffic. Friday it would take 2 hours to get home. Now its 13 miles on oregon back roads 20 minutes tops only because I have to drive through town for the last 2 miles.
