It’s that time of year again. At 2 a.m. this Sunday, clocks will go back one hour, ending daylight saving time in most of the country.
And while many welcome the hour gain, the time change can mean some challenges. Below are some tips to help you deal with it:
1. Driving and walking
drivers Approach crossings and intersections carefully. Check for cyclists and pedestrians before turning. Make sure your car’s headlights, taillights and signal lights are working properly. and clean windshields, replace worn wiper blades, and refill fluid reservoirs.
pedestrians Evening walks should wear reflective gear and carry flashlights. Ride against traffic, but cycle with traffic. Cross in the corners, not in the middle block.
Some appliances, such as ovens and microwaves, may require manual adjustments.
4. Smoke detectors
Check and replace batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
5. Emergency kit
Clocks will not return to daylight savings time until March 12, 2023.
