"It's high time" is correct. "it's about time" is more common Correction: I almost get trapped EVERY DAY at this time. 1."every day at this time" sounds more natural 2.the adverb "every day" had two words 3. The adjective "everyday" has one word. ex: that's an everyday occurrence.

Yes, your sentences are indeed correct. In a similar way, you can also use the phrase "about time".
