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.

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.
