Does Daylight Savings Affect Your Car Accident Risk?

POSTED ON: 03/09/2022

We spring forward and fall back. Most of us know exactly what this means. Most of us also have an opinion on whether we like or dislike Daylight Savings Time (DST). 

But did you know that some scientists warn that these changes can possibly lead to negative health effects?

According to a study, spring Daylight Savings Time transition acutely increases fatal traffic accident risk by six percent in our country. The study continues on to say that the increased risk has been partly attributed to sleep deprivation and circadian misalignment

How does this affect me?

Basically, messing with your body's internal clock can cause both physical and psychiatric consequences. Daylight savings time is this weekend, and that means we’ll lose an hour of sleep. It also means that if you go out, your body may get confused when you're driving when you really should be in bed. We all know that drinking and driving is never a good idea, but when your body's internal clock is misaligned the consequences can be even greater.

Drunk driving

Some research suggests there may even be a link between DST and an increased risk of DUI. We're don't pretend to be scientists, but we know how disastrous drunk driving can be on a normal day so we don't want you to experience an even higher risk of accident.

Do your part to keep the roads safe

You should never drink and drive. But take extra precautions to keep yourself and others safe this weekend. Try your best to get your circadian rhythm back on schedule by getting plenty of sleep in the days before and after the time change. Contact us for help separating drinking from driving.
