Time to Spring Forward This Weekend [Infographic]

Brckylmn/ThinkStock

Remember to set those clocks forward Saturday night as daylight saving time returns at 2 a.m. EST Sunday.

With the change, it is going to be lighter sooner. That means changes in routines a bit, whether that’s driving, bicycling or walking.

“”Driving through school zones becomes more challenging for motorists during the first week of the time change,” Michigan State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle said. “Pedestrians and bicyclists should wear brighter, reflective clothing in order to be seen more easily, and those behind the wheel need to pay close attention and eliminate distractions while driving.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 4,735 pedestrians died in traffic crashes in 2013 and 66,000 were injured — 7,000 of those being children 14 years old and younger. In 2013, more crashes occurred in dark conditions (72 percent) than in daylight (25 percent).
