A woman has revealed she spends four hours driving to and from work each day.

Perth mother Nancy McNally lives in Alkimos, north of Perth city and commutes to Secret Harbour where she works as an associate principal at Comet Bay College.

She told Yahoo 7 her commute is a 216km round trip every morning and evening, as she lives at one end of the Mitchell Freeway and works at the other end.

It's estimated Ms McNally drives a total of 53,000 kilometres a year and spends $7,000 on petrol.

Ms McNally told The West Australian that all her colleagues think she is 'nuts'.

'I leave home at 6am, drop my son off to before-school care in Joondalup and get back on the freeway and get to work by 8am,' she said.

She said if there has been an accident or rain, it could add significant time to her trip.

Ms McNally's car is only one year old and she's already done 53,000 kilometres.

Will Golsby from insurance company RAC said by 2031 it's estimated that seven of the 10 most congested roads in Australia will be in Perth.
