Daylight Saving Time’s end means a more dangerous commute

The end of daylight Saving Time may mean sunny awakenings, but with an hour less of daylight during the evening commute comes limited visibility, which tends to lead to an increase in crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

One of the highest related factors in pedestrian accident claims is lack of visibility.  More persons on foot are struck by cars every year during the nighttime hours than any other time of the day.  Unfortunately, as this article points out, the end of daylight savings time means that the prime commuting hours also happen to be hours of little if any sunlight.  If you are a pedestrian who needs to be in and around high motor vehicle traffic areas to go to and from work, use extra caution especially when crossing roadways.
