    Well what are you looking for? the lenth? the lenght? or the length? you are going to have to be more specific.

    Be careful of averaging.

    Put one foot in a bucket of hot water, and the other foot in a bucket of ice water....that's what average feels like.

    Good answer! :nod:


    Around here, theirs not many 3 car length driveways, my driveway (my parents) is a 18 car driveway. But there's some 30 car and 40 car ones around here! Their might be one or two 50 car drives. .. But those are mostly only one car width. These are just in my town, if you go the next town over, it's avg is more like 3-4 car lenghts and 2 car width, some only 1 car width.

    An average driveway around wear i live is 16' wide x 1500' long. A normal 2 car driveway there is no such thing some are 20 x 24 or 24 x 30. If you are concerned about size get a walking wheel and measure. I'm more concerned by were to put the snow than the size. A 20 x 24 driveway may take 2xs the time than a 16 x 1500 drive would take.Just think in time one pass in and turn around and drive out all done.

    Average length = sum of length of all driveways divided by number of driveways.
