As Americans gear up for summer vacation, TomTom today shared survey results that reveal the road trip realities of 5,000 moms from around the world. An independent global study conducted by the research company Ipsos MORI in March 2012 and commissioned by TomTom found that it takes on average just 27 minutes for children to get bored on long car journeys.

Children from New Zealand appear to be the most patient, and will tolerate up to 34 minutes before their patience wanes.
