ALBION – Clocks are pictured at about 6 p.m. on Friday on the former St. Mary’s Catholic Church (now The Light of Victory Church) at 47 Brown St.

Daylight Savings begins at 2 a.m. tonight, meaning one less hour of sleep. AAA Western and Central New York issued this public advisory, saying some motorists may feel drowsy:

“With Daylight Saving Time beginning Sunday, March 13 at 2 a.m., Americans will ‘spring forward’ and set their clocks ahead one hour. Losing an hour of sleep and the change in daylight hours means motorists may potentially experience drowsy driving and added distractions on the road.

“In addition to the change of daylight, children, pedestrians, joggers, walkers, and bicyclists will likely become more active outdoors.”
