In the U.S., Daylight Savings Time (DST) instructs us to set clocks forward one hour during the spring and back one hour during the fall—just as the common phrase “spring forward, fall back” suggests. This weekend, the time has come yet again. The practice allows for increased daylight hours during spring and summer evenings. The majority of the U.S.—with the notable exceptions of Arizona, Hawaii, and some overseas territories—observe Daylight Savings Time.
With this in mind, the staff of Henson Fuerst reminds the citizens of North Carolina to turn their clocks back this Sunday. Be sure to include all devices that display time—including appliances and the clocks in your vehicle. Most importantly, make sure to get enough sleep.
Stay Safe, As Always
For motorists, the end of Daylight Savings Time brings a few safety concerns including the change in time of sunrise and sunset. For many drivers, the sun will be in a different position during their morning or evening commutes come Monday. This can contribute to dangerous sun-blindness or glare while driving. Other drivers may find an earlier sunset means it is already dark when leaving work—and they may not realize they will need headlights on.
