Well it’s that time of year again.  The sun has been lasting that little bit longer each day, but next week you’ll really notice the evening sun as the clocks go forward one hour this Sunday!

Brake, the road safety charity, are backing the lighter later campaign in the hopes that by putting the clocks forward by two hours in the summer and one in the winter, there will be less road accidents due to better visibility.

According to the Department for Transport, road deaths would be reduced by about 80 per year and serious injuries by about 212 per year.

If this change was to go ahead, it could mean that your driving lessons are taken in daylight more often than in the dark.  Do you prefer to take your driving lessons in the day or the evening? Share your thoughts with us on Facebook!
