Unusually, I had to drive last week, to and from work plus extra stops before and after. According to Google, I was never more than three miles from home.
Five segments in total: 1.2 mi, 5.1 mi, 5 mi, 0.7 mi, 2.4 mi. Varying from under one mile to five miles. In downtown San Francisco. During rush hours. Total time in the car in one day: 2 hours 20 minutes. Average speed: about 7 mph.
You might see this as an argument for moving to the suburbs but I see it as an argument for banning cars in the city.
