I have been spreading the word about when Daylight Saving Time ends this year to hopefully save parents and motorists from worry.
As many readers know there are Halloween parties going on at clubs, bars, homes and other establishments that serve alcohol.
Halloween falls on Saturday, Oct. 31 and obviously the next day is Sunday, Nov. 1, but it is also when Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m.
I have a son who is learning how to drive. With Halloween falling on a weekend, some people may want to start partying on Friday and continue on to the early morning hours of Sunday (Nov. 1). Some of these parties could go on late into the night, and establishments that serve alcohol can push the clock back an hour and keep serving.
I just wanted to pass along this information to parents and drivers so we can cut down on worrying about being out on the roads in the late night and early morning hours of Halloween.
