Ever wondered why the shifting clocks of daylight savings time gives you a strange, uneasy feeling? It’s because it disrupts your sleep. To put it simply, that shift of time causes everyone to lose an entire hour. That’s like giving everyone an entire time zone of jetlag.

This used to be an energy conservation method way back in World War I which people carried over through the 1960s. But as time went by, lots of people started to think that the method may be unnecessary, if not harmful. Lots of people think that maximizing daylight to preserve energy didn’t make sense anymore.

Meanwhile, people who continue to practice this loses an hour of sleep. This might seem like a small, insignificant change, but human beings need an adequate number of hours of sleep each day. This kind of disruption can actually have a big impact on a person’s alertness. Lack of sleep has proven to be one of the main causes of vehicular accidents, an unsafe driving practice called drowsy driving.

But has daylight savings time really contributed to drowsy driving? Research suggests that they have. After looking into 21 years of fatal crash statistics as per the US National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, there was a small but noticeable increase in the number of road deaths on Monday just after the clock is shifted in spring. This is called “spring forward,” and the accident count increased by 83.5 compared to other Mondays. A 1996 study in Canada also found that this shift in the clock also resulted in an increase of accidents by about eight percent.

Of course, this is not to say that people shouldn’t drive on Mondays where daylight savings time is practiced, but a good car accident lawyer in Baton Rouge would advise motorists to avoid driving when deprived of sleep.
