Chevrolet just released survey findings that found more than half of Texas parents say traffic is the most stressful part of a family road trip, more so than keeping kids entertained and hearing the ever-present “Are we there yet?” Additionally, parents in Texas are most likely to prefer larger SUVS, more so than parents in California, Florida or New York.
Chevrolet partnered with Harris Pole to survey Texas parents on their feelings about family roundtrips – this was part of a national survey about the great American road trip.
With the holiday season approaching and many Houstonians preparing to hit the road, we wanted to share these findings with HFM readers. Enjoy!
