Seven Crimes That Are Less Common During Daylight Saving Time


Springing forward means we’re in Daylight Saving Time now, so the sun sets an hour later. And one nice side-effect of that is LESS CRIME. A study a few years ago found crime rates drop 7% during Daylight Saving Time.

A home security system company just looked at property crime rates, specifically between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Here are a few crimes that tend to be less common when the sun sets later in the day . . .

1. Robberies and muggings.

2. Stolen cars.

3. Theft of car parts, like catalytic converters.

4. Thefts from buildings.

5. Property damage.

6. Breaking into cars to steal stuff.

7. Shoplifting.
