ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
On Sunday March 10, it's time to 'spring forward,' and change your smoke detector batteries. We adopt Daylight Savings Time, this Sunday, March 10, at 2:00 a.m.
Fire Departments all over the nation say this is the perfect time to change the batteries in your home smoke detectors.
It's best to set the clocks and change the batteries before you go to bed Saturday night.
Daylight Saving Time lasts for eight months. It starts on Sunday, March 10 and ends on Sunday, November 3.
Consumer Affairs.com says most folks would rather have the time change on Saturday morning, not Sunday morning:
According to the mega-mattress retailer Sleepy's, nearly 70% of Americans said they would prefer it if DST, which happens to fall on Sundays at 2:00 a.m., could be moved to Saturday at 2:00 a.m., so people can get used to the time change over the weekend.
A Sleepy's poll showed there's a 16% rise in those folks who favor moving the change to Saturday, compared to a similar analysis the company conducted in 2011.
For the most part, Sleepy's says the time change can cause all sort of problems, like becoming tired at the workplace and producing less, which of course is never good. The company also points out there's an increased number of accidents on the roads, in schools and at jobs due to folks suffering from fatigue after the semi-annual time change.
