Just like every year, Fall comes along and it's time to "fall back" an hour, which is really annoying because now the sun sets at 4:00 pm.

But spring time isn't any better comes and it comes with a whole new set of problems.

The Monday after DST is typically a day where there are more deaths than any other day of the year. Researchers in Colorado, Sweden and Croatia have recorded up to twice as many heart attack victims on the Monday after DST compared to an average Monday.

In Canada, researchers found that there is a significant increase in car accidents as well as workplace injuries and accidental deaths of any kind.

So motorists, drive carefully out there. Pedestrians try to keep an eye on the sleepy drivers instead of your phone and if you can help it at all, try not to stress too much today.
