In daylight savings, Ridgewood New Jersey on March 8, 2009 at 2:58 pm


In the United States Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. local time on the second Sunday in March. On the first Sunday in November areas on Daylight Saving Time return to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. During Daylight Saving Time turn your clocks ahead one hour. At the end of Daylight Saving Time turn your clocks back one hour.

The names in each time zone change along with Daylight Saving Time. Eastern Standard Time (EST) becomes Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), and so forth. Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time.

In the United States, Under the Uniform Time Act, the Department of Transportation is in charge of time zones in the United States and ensuring that jurisdictions observing Daylight Saving Time begin and end on the same date.

On Monday August 8, 2005 President Bush signed into law a broad energy bill that extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks beginning in 2007. Since 1986 the United States had observed Daylight Saving Time from the first Sunday in April through the last Sunday in October. The provisions of the bill call for Daylight Saving Time to begin three weeks earlier on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. Read our special section about the extension of Daylight Saving Time.


  1. Hi,

    Thanks for reminding me, I totally forgot. With the combo of warm weather and longer hours it’s beginning to feel like a preview of spring here in NJ.


  2. The “RidgewoodSingles.Com” signs have appeared with daylight savingd time. They are all over town.

    I remember that the town was cracking down on the “Stop Valley” lawn signs. The Ridgewood Singles signs are by the curb in front of homes and businesses without the owners’s consent. Can someone make them go away? If they are an Internet business then they should be sending out spam.
