Which 90's Japanese Sports Car Would You Destroy?
It’s not every day that AutoGuide launches a new weekly feature. Today, however, is not just any day; it’s first installment of an interactive segment we call ‘Commute, Toy or Destroy’.
Commuting into town can be one of the most miserable parts of your day. A group of students at College@Home has done some research to find out exactly what your commute is doing to you mentally and physically.
If you’re looking for an excuse to ditch your car and find a more eco-friendly way to commute, but are finding it hard to commit, take the Undriving challenge and apply for your Undriver License.
Based out of Seattle, Undriving.org wants you to find other ways to get around. You can walk, bike, take public transit, or come up with your own creative mode of transportation – just leave the car parked in the driveway.
So here’s how the Undriving challenge works: just like any lifestyle commitment, you set a goal for yourself that involves leaving the car at home and finding alternative ways to get around. It can start small, say riding your bike to work once a month, and you can work your way up to bigger goals from there. As proof of your commitment, you’ll get an Undriver License, which is photo ID that you can use as proof of your eco-goal.
“If you want to drive, we have no problem with that,” said Nicole Fallat, a member of the group’s board. “But if you want to get from point A to point B, we say you don’t have to drive and help you get creative thinking about that.”
To get your Undriver License, there’s a $20 donation charge to cover the cost of materials and shipping within the U.S. There are also plenty of ideas of ways to pledge your support, in case you’re stuck for ideas. You can check out all the details on Undriving.org’s site.

This nifty infograhic is a wealth of enlightening traffic info. Take Chicago, for example. If you’re a driver there, you can expect to be delayed 70 hours a year, which will cost you an extra $1,738. And that’s why Chicago ranked #1 on the list. Also on the list are Washington, DC in second, where you’ll be delayed by 68 hours and spend $1,555 a year, followed by Los Angeles (63 hours and $1,464) and Houston (58 hours and $1,332).
The infographic also goes on the show some other interesting numbers, such as the percentage of people who had to cancel plans in the last month due to traffic delays (47 percent) and that the average person spends an average of two weeks a year in traffic jams in cities across the U.S. And can you guess what city makes it to the top of the worst commuter cities worldwide? You may be surprised!
You can see all of the interesting data provided on the infographic after the jump.
