How many minutes is 0.8 miles driving?

I just got a new job, and it’s super close to my house, but I want to make sure I give myself enough time to drive there anyway. How long will it take me to drive 0.8 miles?

Congratulations on your new job! That’s a pretty short distance, but how many minutes 0.8 miles will take when driving really depends on how fast you’re going. It’ll take less time if you’re driving 70 MPH than if you’re only going 25 MPH—but don’t go breaking any speed limits!
If you’re moving at an average of 35 MPH, it will take you 1 minute and 22 seconds to drive 0.8 miles. If you’re moving at 70 MPH, it’ll only take you 41 seconds.
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of how your speed affects the amount of time it will take you to drive 0.8 miles:
| MPH | Minutes | | ——— | ——— | | 25 | 1 minute, 55 seconds | | 35 | 1 minute, 22 seconds | | 45 | 1 minute, 4 seconds | | 55 | 52 seconds | | 65 | 44 seconds | | 70 | 41 seconds |
No matter how far you have to go, or how quickly you hope to get there, it’s always important to make sure you’re driving with at least your state’s minimum required
