CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A study released Wednesday by EducatedDriver.org says the average person in Charleston will spend 392 days of their life commuting to and from work.

It assumed each person started working at 18 years old and used 63 years old as the average retirement age.Then it assumed each person worked 250 days per year which would accumulate to 11,250 days during a career.

The site then used Census Bureau data about commute times to come up with a number. The average one-way commute time among census bureau respondents in the Charleston-North Charleston metro area was 25.1 minutes in 2016.
