Get ready for a little more sunshine during your evening commute thanks to Daylight Saving Time, which goes into effect at 2 a.m. on Sunday.
In other words, "Spring forward" and turn your clocks ahead an hour.
While you're changing your clocks, local officials also recommend checking and changing batteries on smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Daylight Saving began during World War I and used again during World War II as an energy saving initiative. It didn't become a (mostly) nationwide event until the Uniform Time Act of 1966. Arizona and Hawaii do not participate
The Department of Transportation says Daylight Saving also reduces traffic incidents and lowers crime rates thanks to the additional hour of sun, USA Today reported .
Daylight Saving will run through Sunday, Nov. 5.
