He says thenumber of pedestrian deaths during daylight savings time is usually 25 orless each week nationwide, but it’s expected to hit 100 deaths a week duringstandard time. Erwin says Iowa drivers may need to use that “extra” hour of sleep they’llget Saturday night for the added edge to avoid getting in wrecks. The Iowa Fire Marshal’s Office recommends when people change their clocksback an hour to also change the batteries in their smoke detectors.
