🚨 It’s that time of the year when clocks "fall back" an hour, marking the end of daylight saving time. When you go to bed on Saturday night, don’t forget to turn your clock back an hour. The change takes place at 2:00 am on Sunday, Nov. 4. It’s also a good idea to check your smoke detector batteries. #DST #fallback

🚘 Motorists are reminded to drive slowly in residential neighborhoods and obey all traffic laws.
