Daylights Savings Time Facts

Daylights Savings Time

There's a spike in heart attacks during the first week of Daylight Saving Time, according to a study published in 2008.

People are safer drivers during daylight hours, and researchers have found that Daylight Saving Time reduces lethal car crashes and pedestrian strikes.

Two states — Arizona and Hawaii — and four U.S. territories — American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands — don't observe Daylight Saving Time. Indiana adopted Daylight Saving Time in 2006.
