As the end of daylight saving time approaches, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is reminding motorists to check their vehicles for open recalls as part of its “Safe Cars Save Lives – Check for Recalls” campaign.

Drivers nationwide are urged to check every November when setting clocks back and every March when setting clocks forward. Individuals may use the website to search for recalls.

To further help raise public awareness of recalls, NHTSA and the state of Maryland announced a collaborative pilot program that would alert motorists of open recalls at the time of vehicle registration at no charge.
