    If you're a commuter that drives a car everyday I would really love to see how many miles on average do you drive to work or school per day?

    The Average American Driver drives 33.3 Miles per day.

    On average I drive around 83-86 Miles per day.

    From LAX (Los Angeles International Airport/Inglewood Area) to Irvine (Orange County, CA) on the 405 to go to school everyday M-F

    and just for your information I used to drive a Toyota Highlander, but most recently i'm driving a Toyota Matrix.

    I only drive about 18 miles per day. 20 at most. On an average day it's just to and from school, which is a 9 mile trip.

    I live in Australia however and not a very large city so this is definitely going to be completely different for you Yanks.

    A grand total of 2.2 miles roundtrip a day. I live real close to work. I only put around 2100 miles on my car in over 2 years. My car is going to last forever!

    I'm in a very similar situation. I bike to work when the weather permits as well.

    Every once in a while (when it's raining or unusually cold) I'll drive to class at UCLA, which is around 3.5 round trip. Usually I bike, and sometimes I walk if I have extra time.

    I do much more driving on the weekend, but that's to and from fun activities.

    Once I finish with school (soon!) and I'm working, I'm sure my driving needs will change.....

    Before I went back to school, I drove 7 miles round trip to work in Beverly Hills......

    I feel sorry for you. I live in LA but my job is about a mile away. I often drive places around the southland for my work but the 405 m-f... i'm sorry for you!

    Ohhh the pain. The 405 is horrible. I take, 91>>710>>10. Not to bad. The hours I have make it actually nice. No real traffic. 405 seems to always have traffic and going into LAX... uggh. I feel the pain!

    1 mile on average. That is, I'm in school now, but since I'm a distance education student, I only need to drive to the grocery store on a weekend. This was similar though for me over the last 4 years, since prior to school I was in consulting. I only needed to travel when going to see a customer, in which case I would take a limo to the airport. Of course, there are those occasional weekend trips which I'm not taking into account here.

    Australia is big, but it just so happens that we don't very often drive around it! And we do have freeways (you can come and see them for yourself, if you like)!

    i wouldnt recommend that. our highways mainly consist of one lane roads (each way of course) - and they are uneven and rocky. thats what its like around my part anyway (northern nsw).

    dual lane carriage ways are a luxury :p

    Anywhere from 400-600 miles. But that's only because I'm a truck driver. The most I've ever driven in one sitting is 669 miles. :eek:

    It's always like that at the East LA Interchange. That labyrinth's probably jammed even in the middle of the night.

    I agree. I think that is one of the worst road ways in the nation. Horrible. I avoid that place at all costs if I can.....

    How long does your commute take? Mine takes about 90 minutes getting there, (traffic) and only 40 minutes coming back.

    Woof. I don't know how you guys do that... I went from the Oakland, CA to New York with my girlfriend last summer in 5 or 6 days, and I think our longest day was about long. And that was tough, even switching off every hour or two!

    straight through run is 45minutes, with traffic it can take 2hrs. thats what happens when hundreds of thousands of people drive on a dual lane highway ;)

    Nicely done, NSW Government (and now we've got the puppet Keneally). Seriously, if you guys want to see a dysfunctional government at work, go and see the faction driven, dysfunctional and soon-to-be in opposition NSW Labor Government!
