The Extra Hour of Sleep Should Make You More Alert While Driving!

It’s time to ‘fall back’ with daylight savings time this Sunday, November 6th at 2am. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour and enjoy an extra hour of sleep before getting on the road. Many drivers get behind the wheel and start driving while they’re drowsy; which can create a very dangerous situation for you, the driver and any passengers in your vehicle — as well as other drivers on the road around you. Being alert while driving is crucial for the obvious reason of safety, but also to avoid filing a car insurance claim and the risk of an increase on your car insurance rate.

And remember to replace the old batteries in your smoke alarms at home when changing the clocks back this weekend — recommended by the Fire Marshal of Ontario. It’s not only the law to have a working smoke alarm on every storey of your home and outside all sleeping areas; but, it’s crucial for your safety to make sure working batteries are in all smoke alarms to receive early warning of smoke or a potential fire.

Your safety is important and so is your home! Being precautious may help save your home and prevent filing a home insurance claim. Not to mention the fact that so many of your home’s treasures are irreplaceable. Bookmark this site.
