dark, it’s cozy in your bed, the last thing you want is to emerge from your cocoon
to start a cold, Michigan fall day. Sunday, November 3, however, is the end of
daylight saving time for the year. “Falling back” gives you that extra hour of
blissful sleep and more light in the morning. Unfortunately, this time change
also creates hazardous driving conditions and increases the chances of auto accidents.
It’s Too Bright

change, the sun is in a new place in the sky and its location can disorient
drivers who forget their sunglasses or aren’t expecting a glare.
not only important for you to adjust to new conditions and stay alert so you
can operate your own vehicle safely, you must remain alert for other drivers who
are affected by these changing conditions too. Defensive driving is always important,
but even more so when the clocks change. The sun illuminates, but it can also
be a hazard, at sunrise or sunset.
It’s Too Dark
National Safety Council reports that traffic fatalities are three times greater
at night than during the day. Decreased visibility is one of the biggest
problems. Darkness compromises all your senses and that makes nighttime driving
more dangerous. Depth perception is off, color recognition is altered, and
peripheral vision decreases once the sun goes down. All these conditions can
increase the likelihood of a car accident, and the end of daylight saving time
means more dark hours on the road.
who don’t often drive at night are out in the darker hours more often than
usual. Commuters’ evening drives are affected. Anytime you’re driving in
atypical conditions, your risk of being in a car crash increases as your senses
acclimate to your surroundings. Be on high alert as everyone gets used to the
end of daylight saving time. November is also the time of year for deer-related
collisions, and the darkness only compounds this problem.
The Night Is Too Long
it starts to get dark out, your body’s internal clock recognizes that it’s time
to start slowing down for the day. The body wants to be awake when it’s light
and asleep when it’s dark. Changing the clocks, however, means that sunset
comes an hour earlier and, as we move further away from the sun this time of
year, daylight hours are shorter, nights feel longer, and everyone is just
tired. The earlier the night falls, the greater the chances of becoming drowsy
The Usual Risks Remain
is never a shortage of distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and drowsy drivers.
Their behaviors on the road mimic each other so sometimes it’s difficult to
tell who you’re driving alongside or behind. Ultimately, you don’t want to be
one of those drivers, and you don’t want to tangle with any of them.
the usual precautions, no matter what time of year it is. Make sure your car headlights
and taillights work properly, including high and low beams and signal lights. Put
your phone and other distractions away while you’re behind the wheel. And get
enough rest! You’re gaining an hour – put it to good use.
