Five Crimes That Are Less Common During Daylight Saving Time

Are you surviving the spring forward to Daylight Saving Time? Well, maybe this will help perk you up — one nice side-effect of the sun setting an hour later now is LESS CRIME.  A study a few years ago found crime rates drop 7% during Daylight Saving Time.

The home security system company Vivint just looked at property crime rates, specifically between 5pm and 7pm.  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.
