Caution: Daylight Savings Time!

This weekend, 70 countries will “spring forward” their clocks, and the people in those countries will lose an hour of precious sleep.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver did a great segment about Daylight Savings, check it out below.  One thing I wanted to highlight (mentioned in the video), is that research has repeatedly shown that there are increased car accidents and workplace injuries following the springtime adjustment to our clocks.  So please be careful next week – drive with extra caution, and be extra careful at work!  And in case you’re wondering, this increase in accidents in the spring, is not balanced by a reduction in the fall – when we gain an hour,  there is no change in accidents and injuries.  Hopefully this random routine we all endure will be put to an end someday, but until then, stay safe friends!
