Spring is a great time of year. The days are longer, the temperature slowly begins to rise, and the flowers start to bloom. Spring is also known for seeing a rise in car accidents, specifically around Daylight Savings.
When you really stop and think about it, there’s nothing too surprising about this. There are always a few people who have a hard time giving up that hour of sleep when the week begins. Drivers can feel the effects of this the most. Just like jet lag, losing an hour of sleep to Daylight Savings affects your mood, reaction time and overall alertness on the road. These combine to see a small spike in the number of car accidents that happen when the clock springs forward an hour.
This doesn’t mean you should be terrified the Monday after Daylight Savings! Just be sure to exercise a little bit more caution near busy roads as drivers adjust to the time change. Remember, serious car accidents can happen any time, but you don’t have to face the experience alone. It’s important to have someone on your side to fight for what you deserve.
