Daylight Savings Time – What’s the Point?
What exactly is the point of daylight savings time and why does it have to take effect on a Sunday? Why can’t it actually take place on a Friday afternoon? This would make much more sense – particularly given the fact that we have just rolled our clocks forward and have lost an hour of our weekend. While an hour isn’t much in the grand scheme of things, it’s colossal in terms of time lost in a weekend. I would gladly forgo one hour on a Friday afternoon, but having to do so on a Sunday is wrong.
Apparently, the Monday following the commencement of daylight savings time is considered one of the most dangerous times for drivers. Supposedly, more traffic accidents occur on this day than any other, which studies say is most likely from our internal clocks being out of whack. Really?? What genius came to that conclusion?
