Velvet Hamster has concluded a national study that comes to the conclusion that playing car games with one’s family reduces neither the time nor the distance to the destination.

Meanwhile, dads overwhelmingly reported that perceived distances and time-to-destination were both increased in direct correlation to games played. This study took into account games including: The Alphabet Game, Road Trip Bingo, The License Plate Game, I Spy, and Going on a Picnic.
