Saving not savings

As we move in and out of  daylight saving time each year, some people continue repeating the same mistake.   On my car radio today in the space of less than 15 minutes, 3 different supposedly professional announcers got it wrong.  They alerted us that we’re switching to “daylight  savings time” this weekend.  “Savings” is a noun.  You may keep your savings in a bank.  “Saving” is an adjective modifying a noun….in this case “time”.  Does anyone really care?
