61.2 KM for me, according to Google Maps...
If I go via the US, it's about 68, but it saves me 9 minutes :lol:

37 kilometres because I work in an office that isn't closest to where I live. I used to work in a closer office which was nice. I don't mind a little commute though. I have a Hummer H2, which is very expensive to commute in so I usually end up driving my Mazda 3.

Jeep with a 5.7 litre V8....I drive about 35-40 K one way. With my rotation I put 30-50 bucks a week depending on traffic. That said I had a Jetta before (4cyl turbo) and I would have to put 20 a week. You have to remember the cool factor of trucks though :thumbsup:

Yup. I work on a res, and live in the closest town off of the res. We actually have 5 of our 15 officers who do the 86km one way commute each shift. The rest have a 1-2 KM drive to the office as they live on the reserve.

Yup, pretty much all highway.

From my place, I hit 4 stop signs, then 86 kms of highway, and then 2 stop signs to the police station. I live in a town of about 7000, and police in a village of about 4000. So I might put around 180 kms on my car every shift.

Wow 37 km one way for me. And it's usually a tough drive home after nights. I feel bad for you guys with long commutes.
I will NOT respond to PMs from those not belonging to the private side.

15.5 km for me. The morning usually only takes 20mins but the drive home can range between 30-60mins or more depending of peoples stupidity levels that day.
