Did you know..? We'll drive an average of 556,764 miles throughout our lives. That's more than 22 trips around the globe, or a visit to the moon and back with mileage to spare. Depending on the distance of your commute, this value could also be a lot higher!
Did you know..? It's hard to believe, but we'll spend an average of £9,404 on parking throughout our lives. That's the equivalent of 117 trips with the family to Chester zoo, or 1,880 visits to the car wash. You can, however, help reduce your parking costs by using a website or app like Parkopedia which will help source the cheapest (or free) parking spaces close to where you want to visit. Not only do we spend £1,000s of our hard-earned money on parking, when averaging out parking and speeding fines this comes to a total of £1,620!
Did you know..? We'll mess up our parking manoeuvres 2,709 times throughout our lives! If the idea of performing a parallel park fills you with dread or if the nerves kick in at the supermarket when you're trying to squeeze into the only spot available, then you're not alone. So next time you see someone struggling to park, even if you're a confident cookie, remember that it could be you, so be kind and give them time and space to finish their manoeuvre.
Did you know..? We'll have on average 1,935 arguments with our significant others! Whether it's something as small as leaving the toilet seat up or not putting the milk back in the fridge we all have our arguments, however having one in the car is a serious distraction and could mean your concentration on the road ahead is hindered, increasing your risk of an accident. So maybe next time think about biting your lip until you've got home or at least agree to disagree.
Did you know..? We'll sing along to the radio 7,817 times throughout our lives. I'm sure many of us have, at one time or another, fancied ourselves as the lead singer of a band and we just can't resist turning the volume up when our favourite song comes on. We certainly get enough practice and if your favourite song happens to be "Sweet Child O' Mine" then that's nearly 650 hours of Axl Rose impersonations!
Did you know..? On a much lighter note, we'll kiss our kids and partner goodbye an average of 7,740 times. If you're a lipstick wearer, then you would need to purchase an additional 19 sticks of lipstick to compensate for reapplying your colour after each kiss!
