# How much time does a person spend in their life driving?

The average American spends 101 minutes a day driving (according to the 2007 Harvard Health Watch, see ref:http://www.revolutionhealth.com/blogs/drscherger/men-moderate-exercis-3815)

Using an average lifespan of 77.2 years (http://www.aarp.org/bulletin/yourhealth/a2004-07-07-methuselah.html), and assuming that the above average includes people of every age, we can multiply out:

101 minutes / day * 365.25 days / year * 77.2 years =(###) ###-####3 minutes driving

= 47465.455 hours

= 1977.72 days

= 5.42 years

Given an average lifespan, the average person is driving for 7% of their life.
