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.
