In a press release, the North Carolina Department of Transportation reminds the public that Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6. This weekend is when we turn our clocks back one hour.

According to NCDOT, This change can present challenges for drivers as it gets darker sooner, so many late afternoon commutes will be at dusk.

Safety is NCDOT’s top priority, so use the following suggestions to be prepared for the change:

⦁    Ensure all your car’s lights, particularly the emergency flashers, are working

⦁    When a car approaches, change your headlights from high to low beam.

⦁    Keep an eye out for deer, pedestrians, and bicyclists.

⦁    Get plenty of sleep and be well rested to avoid driving tired.
