The commute to and from work is a daily requirement nobody can avoid.

Not only is it something many unenthusiastically approach, but a study carried out earlier this year by Get Living London, suggested Britons spend more than a year of their lives travelling to and from their workplace.

Forty-five per cent of British workers are believed to place a shorter commute at top priority regards moving home.

Clearly the location of a person’s home is imperative to where it is your work is based.

And a further 47 per cent say they would not be prepared to earn cash anywhere that was ‘too far’.

The survey, which included opinions from 2,000 adults, found the following top 10 hates for commuters.
