Here's one of the big perks of living out in the middle of nowhere. A new study found people in big cities waste almost four days a year looking for parking. 44% said it's a stressful experience . . . 48% said it's annoying that there aren't enough spots . . . and 59% get frustrated by people who suck at parking and take up two spaces.
Researchers 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.
