A lot of people are looking forward to being scared on Halloween but there are a lot of folks who get scared on a daily basis when they think about getting into the car and dealing with their daily commute to work.

Well, in honor Halloween, Robert Half conducted a survey to uncover the spookiest (translation – longest) and most stressful commutes out there, questioning workers in 27 major cities about the length of their commute as well as the stress associated with it.

On average, workers spend about 49 minutes and 10 seconds commuting round-trip each day, but folks in Washington, DC have it the worst, with their average round-trip commute lasting 60.42 minutes. Detroit came in at No. 14 with their average round-trip commute lasting 46.87 minutes.

But just because a commute takes awhile doesn’t mean those workers are the ones most stressed out. In fact, the poll finds that residents of Los Angeles have the most stressful commute, while those in Des Moines, Iowa are the least stressed. Detroit came in at No. 11.
