AAA Warns Of Driving Dangers Due To Daylight Saving Time

By Tracey Leong March 11, 2018 at 7:14 pm

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As we spring ahead, experts recommend driver use extra caution while on the roads. ... A recent study shows Daylight Saving Time may cause drowsy drivers.

As we turn our clocks ahead one hour, auto and health experts worry drivers will lose valuable sleep, putting them at risk for fatal accidents. ... When the alarm goes off Monday morning, AAA is worried commuters could be tired as they hit the road.

“You are losing an hour of sleep, so while many of us think we are well rested, losing that extra hour does contribute to drowsy driving,” said Ragina Cooper Averella, with AAA Mid-Atlantic.

A traffic safety study done by AAA revealed drowsy driving is a factor in nearly 10 percent of all car crashes. And another concern is that conditions on the roadway may look different.
