Two of the worst commutes in the U.S. are in North Carolina according to GPS data.
Analyzing data compiled from smart phones and GPS devices from four million vehicles, the Daily Beast ranked the 50 most tormenting commutes in the country.
The 5.3 mile corridor of Charlotte's I-485 eastbound between Tryon Street/Exit 1 and NC-51/Exit 64 slotted in at No. 31 taking 2.14 minutes per mile at its worst.
The Triangle did not escape scrutiny getting the dubious honor of the 47th most aggravating section of asphalt. Credit the 6.9 mile ribbon of I-40 eastbound between Airport Blvd./Exit 284 and NC-54/Exit 290 where a mile crept by in 1.66 minutes.
On the way home, take deep breaths and listen to something peaceful.
