You could arrive an hour early to church, sit in the pews contemplating stained glass, and kick yourself for not remembering to set your clock back.

A recently released report from the University of Virginia that suggests there is an uptick in street crime, especially robbery, when clocks are turned back. "During the following week, many people wake up earlier, have more trouble falling asleep, and are more likely to wake up during the night".

Part of the act will extend Daylight Saving Time starting in 2007, from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

Exceptions in the United States: In the United States, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not follow DLS.

"Indirect evidence of an increase in traffic accident rates, and change in health and regulatory behaviors which may be related to sleep disruption suggest that adjustment to daylight saving time is neither immediate nor without outcome".
