Clocks ‘spring forward’ tonight for Daylight Savings Time
It’s almost time to turn the clocks ahead for Daylight Savings Time. The clocks officially spring forward at 2 a.m. tonight.
Local fire departments also urge people to replace smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries, and families should discuss home emergency plans.
AAA warns that as Americans “spring forward” and set their clocks ahead one hour, they will be losing an hour of sleep. The change in daylight hours means motorists could experience drowsy driving and added distractions behind the wheel, AAA said.
AAA urged motorists to take precautions against drowsy driving and be alert for kids walking home from school or playing outside.
