Daylight Savings Time

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in The Daily Drive

The last three days have been BRUTAL on the drive in and it finally occurred to me why… daylight savings time.   As the sun is in a totally different position at 6:00 – it is up, more people on my commute are driving right into the sun… which leads to interesting driving conditions.

I have had two friendly waves this weeks as I have had individuals wander into my lane before I gave the old horn a push… twice.   The research indicates it has less to do with the actual driving and the location of the sun, but with the lack of sleep?   There is an interesting article below, in which they actually did a study related to Daylight Savings Time and the increase in fatal accidents, particularly on Monday.

At the end of the day, driving drowsy or tired is a very dangerous condition, add to it the sun and well, we have to get used to the commute again.

DefensiveDriving.com has excellent material related to driving safe in several different conditions and samples of our safety driving videos are located here  –  a sample is below, describing how driving at night is one of the most dangerous times and as the commute in is in the daylight – the trip home is in the dark!

Whether or not you need us for ticket dismissal or you need to take a refresher defensive driving course as an employee driving… DefensiveDriving.com is the market leader and our award winning film is not like fingernails on a chalk board…

Drive Friendly and enjoy the sample below:
