Americans spend an astounding 300 hours in the car every year, According to AAA. Each model year, automobiles become more connected with advanced infotainment systems. Interestingly, Salt Lake City is a model city nationwide for traffic congestion reduction. This year, traffic is reported to be 2% less congested even though our area population is booming. What this means in practical terms is this: in 2018, area drivers spent 19% of their driving time stuck in traffic. This year, drivers only spend 17% of their driving time stuck in traffic. We all know, though, when you are on your way to an important event or even just home after work, even 17% of the time can seem like forever. Here are some apps that might make your traffic time more enjoyable in the Salt Lake City Metro area.
