I kept a track of all the times on my jobs during my 'Blogathon' so that I could work out how fast I drive, on average, to my jobs.
The area in which I work has fairly average traffic for London, and while there are a couple of long roads that I can speed down, the majority of the time is spent going down little residential roads, most of which are covered with speed bumps.
In nine jobs, the fastest I travelled was 36mph (a straight run down the A13), the slowest was 18mph (down lots of twisty turny little roads). My average speed was 25.14mph.
Which sounds really slow, but in London the average speed of a car is 12mph)
On average it took me 3 minutes and 48 seconds to get to a job.
My average travel distance was 1.65 miles, the shortest trip was 0.9 miles and the longest was 3 miles.
(On the shortest trip I travelled at 20.5mph, and on the longest I went 26.6mph).
Apologies to anyone who finds such Excel-powered number crunching boring…
