How many time zones in the US: Department of Transportation to officially map Daylight Saving Time and DST zones across the country


It’s easy to check your local time, but the government says it may be harder to find a map with the correct times across the United States.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s inspector general reported Thursday that the department does not have a single map that accurately shows the country’s time zones and each local DST observance, CNN reported.

The DOT takes care of following the clock because time is important for travel.

However, investigators found that several sources of time information on the DOT website contained errors. For example, the IG shared the original five time zones that changed to nine.

Federal transportation officials are currently working on creating a map. They want it to accurately show local DST boundaries nationwide.

The IG says the problem came to light after the US Senate passed legislation earlier this year making DST permanent.
