Time again to turn all that road rage into a reward.
For the second time, WTOP is rewarding listeners for their miserable morning commutes with “Commuter Idle,” a competition to see who has the worst trek from home to work.
WTOP launched the contest this time last year. The winner then was surprisingly not one of D.C.’s garbage men, who literally have to put up with shit while commuting. It was Brenda Wells, a single mother of three who travels by car (on toll roads), MARC train, Metro train and Metro bus to get from Sparrows Point, Md. to her office at the State Department. As the winner, Wells received a $1,000 cash prize and a one-day limo ride to and from work. This year’s winner receives the same prize.
