Living in Atlanta almost my whole life, I have seen the traffic get worse each year. After the 1996 Olympics, the city just seemed to get really big and really spread out. The amount of time Atlanta drivers have to spend in their cars is on the rise. The metro Atlanta average commute is 28.7 minutes, with some areas over 40 mins. A study by Harvard Health Watch found that the average American spends 37,935 hours driving a car in their lifetime.
Cranking Radar Love by Golden Earring on the stereo can be fun on occasion, but I thought I should take advantage of this wasted car time. Why not feed my brain on the way to my next appointment or commute. There are a number of online programs that you can pay for, or you can chose to get some free podcasts from Open Education Database: http://oedb.org/ilibrarian/skip-the-tuition-100-free-podcasts-from-the-best-colleges-in-the-world/
What do you do during your wasted car time?
