If you’re anything like me, you’ve made a few loops through the one-way streets downtown La Crosse looking for a prime parking spot. It’s not just here in town though, it’s creeping through the parking lots at Festival, waiting for someone to leave the spot you want at the mall, or, if you live near campus during the school year, simply finding anywhere to stash your ride.

Motorists spend an average of 17 hours a year searching for spots on streets, in lots, or in garages, according to a report issued Wednesday.
The hunt adds up to an estimated $345 per driver in wasted time, fuel, and emissions, according to the analysis by INRIX, a leading specialist in connected car services and transportation analytics.
