Aims to petition to End Daylight Saving Time
Governments really need to look at the option of doing away with daylight saving time. The reason for this is because the intended results of saving energy in the period the daylight saving time program was started is not working for our current state. The time that the daylight saving time was effective has long run out hence a need for other inventive methods.
There should be some requirements that should be met before the department of transportation responsible for the daylight saving time program makes its legal to run in any state. The regulations that should be considered include the places that many people worship, go to work, attend school, receive health services, the locations of buy and railway stations and not forgetting shipment of good and services. The evidence that not many places fulfill these requirements should be enough for the department of transportation, the government and any other governing authority that still supports this program for them to finally abandon it.
The air transport sector is another area that is badly affected by the daylight saving time program. The fact that air travel is solely dependent on all the timing made, which will be altered in untold proportions really messes up the plans made by the airport. As a result, people will experience flight delays often missing important business meetings and opportunities that would have made a significant impact on the economy of the country just because of an outdated system that authorities fail to see is no longer important.
In addition to the problems that the daylight saving time program brings in its wake include health issues that immediately state when the program begins. The health problems being talked about include a rise in child security issues, increased vehicle accidents, increased work injuries and an ever rising number in heart attacks.
The simple reason that our kids are no longer safe is that they have to leave for school very early and come home very late, this leaves them vulnerable to attacks from dangerous people. With the program now depicting that people have to be up earlier and drive in the dark to reach their jobs ,makes them susceptible to accidents since the probability of being in an accident is higher in the dark than it is when its daylight.
Furthermore, it was been observed that during the time that the program was in effect, more workers report work related injuries, this is because they have to work more hours and in between some accidents may occur which may not have happened because they maybe more tired than normal. The fact that the program uses valuable time, funds and effort to be put in place and it doesn’t have any long term or short term effects for that matter makes it even clear that it should be scrapped off.
