Walking, running, driving, waiting

Question

With a tip of the hat to @BMAD  for his interesting puzzle.

For your amusement, here's an interesting spin on this genre:

One night you encounter a two-hour traffic delay due to an accident (the tow truck had difficulty clearing the road.) So, for a time interval 13 of two hours you were constrained to travel at 0 mph. You called home and said, sorry dear, but I'll be two hours late getting home. 

The next night, for some unimaginable reason, you were also constrained to travel part of the way at 0 mph, this time for a distance of one inch. What do you say now when you call home?

Well, depending on whether you're rounding down or are actually going exactly 0 mph... "I won't be home tonight."?
