Daylight saving time can lead to drowsy driving

A recent study from AAA suggests that losing an hour of sleep after Daylight Saving Time leads to an increase in drowsy driving accidents. Drowsy driving contributes to 10 percent of all car wrecks, according to a AAA traffic safety study, so preventing it is essential. Following Daylight Saving Time, Virginia drivers also face a range of new issues, such as darker mornings and the presence of glare. Therefore, they should know how to prevent accidents during this adjustment period.

Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries

In Virginia and across the United States, many auto accident victims suffer from soft tissue damage, sometimes without knowing it. The shock of a collision, combined with the sudden braking and the bracing of the body, can cause the soft tissues of the body such as the muscles, tendons and ligaments to stretch and become strained, sprained or torn. Symptoms may not become noticeable until days after a crash.
