According to a new study, people in big cities waste a solid chunk of their lives just searching for parking.
Researchers in England found that people in London spend an average of eight minutes every time they have to search for a parking spot, which works out to almost four days a year.
We assume they’re talking about street parking. If you’re driving around for eight minutes at Walmart, you’re doing it wrong.
Even in smaller cities, they found it takes an average of five minutes to find street parking, which isn’t much better.
44% of people say finding a spot is a stressful experience. Only 20% say they don’t get stressed out at all.
48% find it annoying that there just aren’t enough spots available. And 59% are frustrated by people who park like jerks and take up two spots.
