DOT Wants You to Take Caution During CDT

Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you got to bed on Saturday night.

Yes, you’re going to lose some sleep as we begin Daylight Saving Time, but Larry Corsi with WisDOT’s Bureau of Transportation Safety says not to lose focus.

"For a lot drivers it will be dark as they make their morning commute. Allow a little extra time for travel in the coming days. Pedestrians and bicyclists are also getting used to the time change and may not be as conscious about decisions they’re making. The dark conditions will put them at greater risk of not being seen by motorists. They should wear retro-reflective or bright colored clothing to be more visible."

Corsi says if you’re walking or biking to work or school obey traffic signals; don’t dart out into traffic; and, remember, just because you can see a vehicle, that doesn’t mean the driver of that vehicle can see you.
