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.
