I want to take this opportunity to say, “please drive carefully, particularly over the next two weeks!”

The beginning and end of Daylight Savings Time has a profound effect on our sleep schedule. Studies have shown an increase in automobile accidents immediately following the clock change associated with Daylight Savings Time.

It’s essential to consider this when driving. Remember, just because you’re rested and doing okay doesn’t mean everyone else on the road is alert as well.

My job requires me to respond to crashes. Nearly all of them are caused by following too closely, distracted driving, or a combination of both. It’s sooooooo important to leave plenty of space between vehicles. I cannot stress this enough.

Drive safe!
