Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MOTORISTS in Britain waste an av­er­age of al­most FOUR days ev­ery year look­ing for park­ing spa­ces, a study shows.

Driv­ers in Lon­don typ­i­cally spend al­most eight min­utes search­ing for some­where to leave their ve­hi­cle af­ter each jour­ney, com­pared with five min­utes in the East of Eng­land and East Mid­lands, ac­cord­ing to re­search by trade body the Bri­tish Park­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

A poll of 2,000 adults re­vealed that 44% of motorists say find­ing some­where to park is a stress­ful ex­pe­ri­ence, with just one in five see­ing it as “stress-free”.
