DON’T FORGET to set your clocks forward by one hour at 1:00am on Sunday 28th March 2010, officially the start of British Summer Time (BST).
The purpose of the change to BST is to make maximum use of daylight hours, principally to maximise working efficiency. The idea was first introduced to save on fuel costs by increasing the working hours available in daylight.
But RoSPA, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, believes that one of the consequences of adopting BST is that more people are killed and injured on the road because of darker evenings in the autumn and winter.
