Well, once again, we're about to fall for it: On Saturday night (or maybe Sunday morning), we will go through our households and advance every clock (and every electronic device with a clock) by one hour.
To combat drowsy driving, AAA recommends you travel at times when you are normally awake, travel with an alert passenger and do not underestimate the power of a quick nap. Technically, it starts at 2:00 a.m. ET.
According to a news release citing the Ohio Department of Public Safety, in 2016, driving while drowsy led to crashes in which 25 people died and more than 1,500 were hurt.
And South Carolina lawmakers are considering abandoning the time change also. We should choose one (our preference is daylight saving time, but it doesn't really matter) and stick with it year-round.
Patty Owens, of Bismarck, says she "loves" daylight savingtime. "There are a lot of pros to daylight saving time, but I'm not hearing much discussion in Florida about the cons".
On Sunday at 2 a.m. local time, we are "springing forward", moving the clocks ahead one hour as we enter daylight saving time (DST).
Standard time and the four USA time zones, it should be emphasized, were not decreed by government, but were established by the railroads early on to coordinate train departure and arrival times.
Hawaii and parts of Arizona do observe DST.
March 19, 1918 - The Standard Time Act establishes time zones and daylight saving.
Clocks will "spring" forward this weekend in most Canadian households in the semi-annual adjustment to our lives. The comfort of your bedroom (and you at bedtime) is not just a luxury, it is critically important to the quality of your sleep. It helps us manage our energy bills because it cools down earlier.
Happy (almost) Spring, Montreal, see you on the other side!
These discussions are driving more people to wonder, "It's only an hour, what's the big deal?" For example, on the shortest day of 2017, the winter solstice of the northern hemisphere on December 21, sunrise was at 7:04 a.m. and sunset was at 5:34 p.m.
As the winter days lengthen, sunrise would be around 7:30 a.m. and sunset at about 7:30 p.m. under daylight saving time. On Monday, there will likely be a 24% spike in heart attacks and a short-term increase in auto crashes, strokes, and potentially even suicides. Some cities like NY would observe it while rural areas around them did not. "And it was awkward for people living near the state borders". Daylight Saving Time begins today.
While fall is my favorite season, the one thing I dread each year is turning my clock back and having it get dark shortly after I get off work, or in many cases before I even leave the office. In 2007, Daylight Saving Time was extended by four weeks.
The change would only make sense if other states in proximity do the same. It was enforced during the First World War, in a bid to save money during wartime. "We're saving daylight. The sun gets up too early in the summer and so we're helping the sun get up a little later".
IN law also requires that the smoke detectors be either battery operated or hard wired into the electrical system and be accessible for servicing and testing (at least once each six months).
Under the Uniform Time Act of 1966, states may chose whether to use Daylight Saving Time.
For the record, it took the Florida bill less than a minute to pass but if Governor Rick Scott approves it, the Florida action will still have to go to Congress for what is expected to be a favorable decision. The state now follows the national timetable.
In the U.S., DST was repealed in 1919 and not reestablished until World War II. The sunset in Tampa on December 22 would happen at about 6:39 p.m., an hour later than last year's 5:39 p.m. sunset. Would it be beneficial to keep our clocks forward the whole year and stop practicing Daylight Saving Time? "British titles and estates are all inherited by the oldest son".
