Picky Parkers Pay the Price
We’ve all been there: circling a parking lot looking for that perfect parking space. You notice a person leaving the next row over and you quickly speed over only to find that someone else has claimed the space, meaning you must look for another option. Searching for a spot for several minutes might not seem like much, but did you know that each year US drivers waste an average of 17 hours looking for a parking space? In addition to the millions of pounds of carbon emissions, each driver lost $345 in fuel and time. Thankfully, there is an easy solution: park farther away! Not only will you get there faster than waiting for that perfect spot, you will also save yourself money, reduce stress and get some walking in! As a bonus, you might even save time and stress later as the further parking spots are typically closer to the exit of the parking lot.
