Some people refer to daylight saving time as daylight savings time or summer time. In daylight saving time, we have more evening hours and less morning hours since a clock is advanced by an hour. The adjusting of the clock ahead and back is done in spring and autumn respectively. Therefore, an hour of sleep is lost in spring and an extra hour of sleep is gained in autumn. Energy crisis resulted in the invention of the daylight saving time. We don’t need the daylight saving time in this era. The End Daylight Saving Time petition should be approved because of the following reasons.
There have been an increase in the number of road deaths because of the daylight saving time. After adjusting our clocks forward, drivers sleep for reduced hours. Austin C did his own research and discovered that DST causes more road accidents. The one hour of sleep which is lost can be blamed on the heightened number of road accidents. The best way to reduce road deaths is by supporting the petition to end daylight savings.
A lot of people have had heart attacks because of DST. Research shows that sudden changes in time and sleep patterns can lead to heart attack. Heart attacks happen after sudden blocking of the heart blood vessels. Research shows that the risk of having a heart attack after losing an hour of sleep is very high. Daylight savings petition should be approved in order to reduce deaths caused by heart attack.
Daylight saving time has been proved to increase the energy costs rather than reducing the costs. The reason why DST was proposed was to save on energy usage. We have enough sources of energy hence DST should be ended.
DST increases the power bills. The DST will cut down on the cost of lighting but increase the cost of air conditioning. More air conditioning energy is used during the extra hour we get in the evening hence I fully support the abolishing of the daylight saving time.
Record keepers, employees, and travelers are affected negatively by DST. Daylight saving time reduces the number of working for employees who are in night shift.
Lastly, daylight saving time brings effect similar to those caused by jetlag. Once the clocks are forwarded by an hour, your body clock will not be synchronous with the clocks and this results to fatigue, insomnia, and headache.
In conclusion, daylight saving time is an outdated practice and should be abolished.
