The Long Drive

I have been commuting to Toronto from Newmarket for seven years. I spend at least two hours or more each day in a car.

I have developed some insights about commuting.

The first insight: I hate it. God hands out common sense to many people. Those He overlooks become commuters. Commuting over 50km or more to work is foolish. My second insight? I am a foolish person. I have continued to commute despite the associated stress and frustration of all that wasted time spent crawling in traffic.

Rising traffic congestion levels in Toronto and the deterioration of driving manners is causing me to rethink the whole commuting process. I’m just not sure what to do. Transit would take more than three hours or more each day. And my family loves being in Newmarket.

This article gives an interesting perspective on commuting.

    I think it’s time to hire a driver. Get a van/limo with a desk in the back and you’re all set! (and then donate your BMW to me) 🙂

    There are some executives that have drivers and limos. There are some executives who are transported by helicopters.

    As for me, I have to battle the roads. Either that or move closer to work!
