Of course, a normal distribution cannot be the true distribution for the commute time because this distribution allows for negative commute times. In other words, the normal distribution gives positive probabilities to negative commute times, which does not make physical sense. Therefore, better distributional assumptions for xt would be the lognormal or chi-squared distributions. However, the convenient properties of the normal distribution make it very attractive to use even with events where it may not make physical sense to do so.
