Turn back the clock this weekend

When you go to bed Saturday night, be sure to turn back your clocks one hour as time will “fall” back at 2 a.m. Sunday morning when daylight savings ends.


Daylight savings won’t start again until Sunday March 11, 2018 at 2 a.m., at which time clocks should be moved forward one hour.

Most smartphones, tablets and other devices automatically adjust their time to reflect the beginning and end of daylight savings, unless it has been manually disabled.

According to timedate.com, less than 40% of the world uses daylight savings. It’s primary use is to make better use of natural daylight in the evenings, and some studies have shown that the use of daylight savings time leads to fewer road accidents and injuries because of the natural daylight while more people are traveling on roadways.
