END DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

Messages Sent So Far
Please stop the messing with our schedules. It's an antiquated practice that only aggravates people. As it is Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgina Islands, and America Samoa do not participate in this practice.

It has zero benefit and the day of switches there are high report of traffic incidents. It is beneficial to end daylight saving time.

If it was lighter later during winter months, people would actually consider doing more physical activities including shopping regardless of temp which would only help the economy

I teach 1st grade, and I see how hard DST hits my students. They really struggle, many of them, for up to a few weeks. I personally have always hated and dreaded it. When we switch to Standard Time, there is no adjustment period, just relief. When we go to DST, I feel groggy and unwell for weeks. It is pointless misery which affects mood, health, and mental acuity. Why are we still doing this? And why do we keep adding on and doing it for longer?

Wasn’t DST started by a man who wanted the “turkey” as our National Bird?

These are the issues people really care about, any politician willing to end this practice would benefit greatly at the polls, please just leave it at spring forward. Many of us hate to see the sun set at around 4:30 in the winter.

PLEASE END DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME!!! It only messes with our internal schedules and contributes greatly to SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)!! This disorder consists of people who suffer more from depression and anxiety during the longer darkness during winter months due to DST! Please goto www.standardtime.org to learn more!

Please end DST for good leave it at Spring forward and do not touch again. This is not good for the human body it is messing up our biological clocks. Not good for babies and certainly not good for senior. (Seniors heart attacks when time changes back and forth.) Nobody is going to go to sleep at 7:00 p.m. We are just going to use more electricity !!!

DST causes a lot of issues, because it throws our circadian rhythms off. It can contribute to heart disease, fatigue, increased vehicle accidents, and decreased job performances (all due to a loss or a gain of an hour of sleep!). It doesn't save energy, and it has been proven from many different sources. One source includes Quartz, whose article is right here: https://qz.com/636313/why-america-will-never-get-rid-of-day-light-saving/

Please lok up OSHA accident reports for the Monday after we change our clocks. It is horrible, you are setting up the workforce for accidents and failures just to force some clock change on us that nobody wants. Stop this nonsense at once.

Daylight Saving Time is bad for the Environment. Less Depression with Standard Time. Doesn't Save Energy. Costs Money. Standard Time is Natural; Daylight Saving Time isn't.

I lived in Arizona and loved it. I now live in WY and it totally messes my life up. Please end this absurd practice. I beg of you. It is ignorant as hell to pretend it is an hour later than it really is. The sun does not lie.

Keep clocks consistent throughout the year. It does not make sense to make daylight time shorter during winter. It is already short in the winter. Nobody is going to go to sleep at 7:00 p.m.

Daylight savings is an annoyance, and is pointless. Not only does the U.S. have areas that don't participate, we have business dealings in other countries, who DON'T change their time. This makes it very difficult to conduct business at appropriate times. When we switch back to the NORMAL time, in November, the time changes really should stop. I can't see where it helps anyone! In Summer, who wants to have sunlight at 9pm? And, in Fall, who wants to have their kids standing at the bus stop in the dark? Let's join Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands and America Somao in keeping to ONE schedule!

I hope DST goes away. It only take daylight away from the working man nowdays.

There is no logical reason why we need to continue changing our clocks forward or backwards. We need to leave it as it is now with the daylight hours longer. It is safer for the general public, better for people who work early, and we use less electricity when daylight lasts longer. It is an antiquated solution that no longer solves anything.
