SECAUCUS — Monday mornings are already a drag, but after losing an hour of sleep due to Daylight Saving Time, it can be a bit harder.

According to the American Automobile Association, it can take two weeks for someone’s body to adjust to the time change. They also say that drowsy driving is a major threat on Monday mornings, calling it “one of the most underreported traffic safety issues.” Struggling to keep eyes, lane drifting, and not remember the last few driven miles are just some of the signs of drowsiness that AAA warns drivers to watch.
