Spring Forward – Daylight Savings Time Starts
March 10 @ 2:00 am
The Original Purpose of DST was to make better use of Daylight. If you live in the USA there is a lot more daylight during the summer months. If you live near the equator then Daylight is equal throughout the day, giving you roughly 12 hours of daylight. In fact the closer you live to the North or South pole the more sun you get during the summer months.
In the winter DST works by giving you more sunlight in the morning. Then at some point, it was said that we use less energy by using DST. Daylight savings time has been observed in the USA Since 1918. The DOT, Department of Transportation is the agency that governs DST. Not all states are required to follow DST if they do not choose to.
