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.

Please- let's STAY on daylight savings time and stop the switch! Sunlight after work is the only thing that keeps me alive!

It was a good idea at the time, however in this day and age we all don't go home at 5pm and turn off all the office lights. This doesn't really save any energy in a world where businesses work under lights all day regardless of where the sun is.

I am falling asleep on my way to work!! THIS CAN'T POSSIBLY BE OK!! Imagine my kids at school when I have to put them in the car still half asleep. How is this ok for them mentally and educationally? There are many scientific studies on the horrible side affects of not getting enough sleep and then we are forced to get up an hour earlier?

Daylight Savings Time does not accomplish what it is designed to do, which is to save energy, but it does cause people to have have disrupted sleep, which can lead to sickness and accidents. It is time to end DST. Indiana used to be one of the states that did not participate in DST. Indiana needs to go back to staying on standard time year round.

I am a mother of two and I work full time. Every time daylight savings begins I fall sick, very sick. I suffer from headaches if I don't get enough sleep. Unfortunately my daughter ends up an hour late to school for the week because I won't wake up the younger one to literally drag everyone to school at, what was just two days prior, 6:00am!! It's been over a week since it started and I am still not adapted. I took a 2 hour nap in the car with my son this morning after dropping off my daughter at school, then another hour nap before going into work. I still feel like I can hardly function, let alone perform my job duties.

I see absolutely no reason in continuing this out dated and unnecessary upheaval of our daily lives. It only serves as a disruption to our schedules both professionally and personal.Not to mention the rise of medical conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, sleep deprivation and car accidents. Please let pick a time and stick with it.

It's time to abolish this antiquated nonsense of changing the time! Set is back or forward 30 minutes and be done with it.

DST must have been created by someone WITHOUT children. Please END it. It's painful. How do I justify bedtime when the SUN IS STILL OUT?!?!

DST contributes to Billions of wasted dollars JUST in the electronic world trying to keep time. DST has such lingering effects on the human body trying to adjust and compensate for the transistion. There is NO benefit in Saving any money now that this a global economy. The idea was originally to save electriciy due to Lights. In todays age, we run lights 24/7 for 'security' and other purposes. Stop the the DST practice

I am a school teacher and switching times is so hard on the kids. It takes them about two weeks to adjust. We lose some valuable teaching time because the kids are so tired. I would like to see the time stay the same year round especially for the sake of children.

Daylight savings time, put simply, is ridiculous. It has absolutely no benefit, and a lot of downfalls. Such as its effect on human health, disrupting sleep cycles, and so on. (No one wants to get used to getting up at 5 am then to remain getting up at 5 they are technically getting up at 4 after the time change) What with today's technology we do not need "longer shopping hours" and the fact that DST keeps getting extended to provide longer shopping hours or longer trick or treating time is just stupid. Like we need more sugar in our diets... Stop thinking about your next dollar and try actually benefiting the people for a change..

Please discuss ending daylight savings time, it only disrupts sleep cycles. If we can't agree it is useless we have no hope for any other meaningful goveretn refoem

Changing the time every year is not necessary. It interferes with so many daily life functions. Please stop this antiquated process, it is so ridiculous! Time for a change... NOT to change any longer! Thanks.

I do not know a single person who claims to benefit from the "savings" resulting from the time shift twice per year. I personally struggle with adjusting my body and sleep schedule each time, and I know many who have children and it wreaks havoc on their lives. This antiquated practice needs to be ended. Thank you for your consideration.
