Reasons Why Daylight Savings Petition Should Be Approved
Summer time and daylight savings time are other terms which can be used interchangeably with daylight saving time. The practice of adjusting the clocks one hour forward during summer in order to have an extra hour in the evening and reduced hours in the morning is known as daylight saving time. The clocks are advanced one hour at the start of the spring and one hour backward in autumn. In spring, you will have a few hours of sleeping and during autumn, you will sleep for more hours. The daylight saving was proposed in order to cope up with the energy crisis. Of late, some people and organizations are proposing the abolition of the DST. There are many reasons why the daylight savings time should be abolished but here are some of the reasons.
Many road accidents have resulted from daylight saving time. After adjusting our clocks forward, drivers sleep for reduced hours. If is after performing four tests that Austin C discovered this. In spring, more people die because of road accidents. The End Daylight Saving Time Petition should be approved in order to cut down on the number of road accidents.
Daylight saving time can be blamed on the high number of heart attacks. Immediately after forwarding the clocks forward and losing an hour of sleep, many people experience heart attacks. DST leads to immediate blocking of the blood vessels to the heart. Research shows that the risk of having a heart attack after losing an hour of sleep is very high. DST should be abolished in order to reduce cases of heart attack.
DST has led to increased energy bills. The reason why DST was proposed was to save on energy usage. Today, we have no energy crisis since new sources of energy have been invented hence the daylight saving time should be abolished.
Daylight savings time has been proven to increase energy bills rather than to reduce them. Although the lighting energy bills are reduced, air conditioning bills increases. We need to support the petition to end daylight savings in order to save on air conditioning costs.
Record keepers, employees, and travelers are affected negatively by DST. For example, during the DST results to people working for a less hour during night shift after forwarding the clock by an hour.
Lastly, daylight saving time brings effect similar to those caused by jetlag. After adjusting the clock forward by an hour, the clock in your body will not be in sync with the clock and this may lead to a headache and fatigue among others.
In conclusion, daylight saving time is an outdated practice and should be abolished.
