This Sunday, November 5th, the United States will “fall back” an hour as daylight savings ends. While a majority of smartphones, computers and DVRs will automatically adjust to the time change, there are still some clocks that will require a manual set back. Therefore, make sure all manual clocks are set back an hour before going to bed this Saturday to enjoy an extra hour of sleep.
In addition to setting your clocks back, it would also be an appropriate time to make sure all smoke detectors are working properly as winter approaches and families begin to snuggle up by the fire. Daylight savings time ending means it will begin to get darker earlier. Here are some safety tips you should keep in mind:
- Prepare for Nighttime Driving – since it will begin to get darker earlier, make sure headlights and taillights are working so your vehicle remains visible on the road
- Be Aware of Others on the Road – this includes other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and animals. Due to the darkness, it may become difficult to see others on the road so make sure you drive cautiously
- Relax and Rest – take advantage of the extra hour by getting to bed at a reasonable time so you are well rested for the week
Enjoy your extra hour and be sure to stay safe on and off the road!
