Spring Forward, Sunday March 8th
SUNDAY MARCH 8TH 2015, 02:00
Remember this Sunday time will spring FORWARD one hour at 2AM. Keep in mind this will affect the number of downtime hours needed for a restart.
A few things to consider before planning a start time for the beginning of the week
- For those drivers expecting to restart the work clock of 70 hours, you will need to remain off duty for an extra hour as there is an hour ‘lost’ over the weekend of Spring DST. For example, if your 34 hour clock normally could restart at 03:00 on Sunday morning, plan to add 1 hour to this time to account for the hour lost.
- The display on the incab Elog will show a 24 hour graph, but will only calculate 23 hours for Sunday March 8th
- With the time change, this could mean yet another hour of sleep lost. Recognize the warning signs of fatigue (yawning, day dreaming, wandering in/out of traffic lanes, cannot remember time or last few miles driven) and take measures to prevent fatigue-related crashes.
