Honk! Honk! Americans Spending More Time In Traffic

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are dealing with major rush hour traffic every day.

They're facing what's called a "megacommute."

According to the Census Bureau, 600,000 Americans drive more than 50 miles to work each way.

They also spend at least three hours a day in traffic.

The long commutes are mostly found in large cities.

The average "megacommuter" is likely to be male, older, married, and higher paid than the average worker.

Another 11 million people have a long commute.

That means they spend at least an hour in traffic each way.
