The time change tends to cause some confusion among travelers, as the Brevard Times reported on Monday, October 21. Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, do not turn the clocks back. Those states don't have daylight saving time. They never turn back or spring forward.
Some countries, including Mexico, turn their clocks back a week earlier than we do, more on that in this story.
As previously reported, the rest of the states turn clocks back on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013.
