March 5, 2020 - Don’t forget that time moves forward on Sunday at 2 a.m. That’s when Daylight Saving Time begins and clocks should be set forward one hour.  the U.S. Department of Transportation, which is in charge of Daylight Saving Time, says it:

  • Saves energy because the sun sets later and less electricity is needed for lighting
  • Saves lives and prevents traffic injuries because more people are traveling during daylight hours
  • Reduces crime because more people are conducting business during the daylight rather than at night when more crime occurs
