DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS: Turn back clocks - and practise fire safety

Massachusetts panel seeks regional talks on time zone change

According to historians, Daylight Saving Time had been used in the United States and many European countries since World War I. It was an effort to conserve fuel needed to produce electric power.

Canada will be switching from daylight savings to standard time early Sunday morning, which means an extra hour of sleep.

Another road hazard associated with less light, researchers have noted a spike in pedestrian-involved accidents after daylight saving time ends, though they say it is short-lived as drivers acclimate to the change in a matter of weeks.

A recently released report from the University of Virginia that suggests there is an uptick in street crime, especially robbery, when clocks are turned back.

DST is meant to decrease the amount of daylight in the morning hours, so that more daylight is available in the evenings during the summer months. "It's very important for your brain function, it's really important for your sleep quality and it's a really important time giver for your circadian clock". This will remain the status quo until March 11, 2018, when clocks will be readjusted once more, this time by "springing forward".

The time change isn't always smooth for children, but there are some ways to help. Set clocks ahead one hour.

During the second year of the USA program, daylight time was lifted between November and February, the darkest months of the year. However, the 2005 Energy Policy Act moved DST up three weeks earlier and ended it a week later.

The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.
