Drivers who commute out of the Inland Empire have the most time on their hands to fill while making long treks to their workplace, according to recent census data. "The data said the commute is almost 42 minutes for workers from Lake Elsinore. For Riverside County, the commute is 31.6 minutes," notes abc7.

For workers in other SoCal counties the numbers are high, too; "In Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, workers spend a little less than 30 minutes traveling to work. In Orange County, the average commute time is about 26 minutes."
