Daylight Savings Time Ends Tonight
Prince George, B.C. – Another reminder that winter is near.
Daylight Savings Time officially ends at 2 a.m. tomorrow morning, meaning you should move your clocks back one hour before going to bed tonight.
Previous statistics from ICBC suggest anyone who drives should take the extra hour and get some rest.
In the two weeks following the time change, ICBC stats show a 16% increase in the average number of crashes in the late afternoon in B.C. compared to the two weeks before the switch is made.
The extra hour of sleep doesn’t translate to safety says ICBC as a survey it conducted indicated 30% of drivers overcompensate for that hour by staying up later.
