Is your daily commute to and from work a “highway to hell“? If you drive to work, then chances are, it is.

I take the train into NYC every day. Some are sworn to driving but complain about the commute taking 1.5 hours to their office. I used to live in L.A. and it was a mess on the freeways. People asked how bad the commute from Santa Monica to North Hollywood was. I used to joke that if you had a stick shift you only needed first and second gears.
