AAA Offers Safety Tips As Clocks Turn Back For Daylight Savings Time


With Daylight Savings Time ending tomorrow at 2 AM, Americans will set their clocks back one hour to standard time. 

The organization AAA says that with this change, an earlier sunset and darkness can lead to an increase in the number of pedestrians killed or seriously injured by vehicles. Drivers are advised to take precautionary steps such as watching out for pedestrians when backing up in parking lots or driveways, using headlights to be seen, and being mindful of children and others who are outdoors in the afternoon and evening as it gets darker earlier. 

When it comes to pedestrians, to be seen better AAA suggests staying in well-lit areas, wearing light or reflective clothing, and using sidewalks and pathways.
