ICBC is giving advice to drivers following the time change.
Clocks were turned back an hour yesterday, and spokesperson Ingrid Brakop warns it can influence drivers.
She confirms crashes increase every year as the daylight hours decrease.
"It's almost double, for the number of pedestrians injured in crashes. Yes, it can partially be attributed to Daylight Saving Time. It's just getting darker, so we are just asking drivers to pay extra attention to their surroundings."
Brakop is advising drivers to take extra time to look for pedestrians before turning, to avoid distractions and to be ready to yield.
