Let Us End Daylight Savings Time
Daylight saving time is a practice of forwarding the clocks so as to enjoy more daylight during the summer months. Daylight saving time (DST) is also known as daylight savings time and summer time. As the spring starts, you are supposed forward you clock by an hour and backward by an hour in autumn. It is during the World War 1 that the DST was started. Daylight savings time has more demerits than merits today. The daylight saving time petition should be approved because of the below reasons.
The daylight saving time has led to many road accidents. During the daylight saving time, drivers lose one hour of sleep. The one hour of sleep which is lost has been proved to be the main cause of road accidents. The daylight savings petition should be approved in order to reduce the number of road deaths.
Daylight saving time has led to high energy bills. The daylight saving time was created in order to save on energy back when there was an energy crisis. Today, there are many sources of energy hence daylight saving time is not of any benefit. Although the DST initially was to lower energy bills, today, it has led to increased energy bills. Air conditioning needs more energy compared to the lights and many families need air conditioning during the summer months. After daylight saving time is stopped, people in the regions which have summer will save on energy.
Summer time has caused a lot of people to suffer from heart attacks. The blocking of the blood vessels found in the heart leads to a heart attack. The one hour of sleep loss as a result of advancing the clocks has been proven to lead to heart attack. The probability of getting a heart attack on the Monday people lose an hour of sleep is higher than any other Monday in the year. In order to reduce the cases of heart attacks, let us abolish DST.
Traveling, medical billing, and bookkeeping is more challenging after the clocks are advanced. These areas are disrupted when the clocks are advanced one hour forward and an hour backward at the end of the DST. By abolishing the daylight saving time, bookkeeping, traveling and medical billing will be easier.
Although the daylight savings time was meant to favor the farmers, it is no longer favoring them. The extra evening hour during daylight savings time affects the morning hours when the farmers are supposed to be going to the market to sell their products. The farmers have also had a hard time getting cows to adapt to the new milking hours. The DST should be stopped.
