    You want to keep "Daylight Savings time" and stop "Stander Time" Daylight time keeps it from being dark early.

    Oh, absolutely, do away with it. I own a child care, every year we have children crying because, “it’s getting dark and mommy or daddy have not picked me up yet. “. They don’t understand and how do you explain that to s three, for, and five year old. It affects us all, but at least we somewhat understand and can deal with the lunacy, children do not understand.

    We need more day light at the end of the day. Safety first and then our health: It is likely no surprise that the 6-hour block during the day in which most accidents occurred in 2010 (the last year data was available) was 3-9pm, with the highest percentage of them occurring between 6-9pm -- evening rush hour. Commuters rush home daily to eat, spend time with their families, watch television and/or get to work on a second job. So why don't we frame this so that drivers are given an advantage here? This about those young drivers that are driving home for the first time after work in the rain at night. Now look at the cost of car insurance; insurance companies make money either way. But if we shift the time to put drivers back into the sunlight and we'll pay less for car insurance and the insurance companies will be fine (OVERHEAD). Now let’s shift to older drivers; how many times have you heard someone say that they have a hard time driving at night due to their night vision. Yep; we're simply putting people at risk for no reason at this point. I totally get the old reasons for this system, but things are quite different from 1895 (and the 70’). It a slim line in the advantages verses disadvantages so why do it? Let’s move it ahead (next Spring) and leave it. There will be daylight for those living in most places in the US for the 5 o'clock commute home from work. Those living in Anchorage Alaska are already driving to work in the dark, so they won’t mind the lake of change considering that sunrise in the summer can be as early as 4:20 am with a sunset of 11:30 pm. As a kid I remember that this resulted to a 22 hour day (first light to dusk). It never really became pitch black in the summer.

    EVERY time DST goes into affect, the number of heart attacks and auto accidents increase, and many of each of those are fatal. Businesses report productivity and accuracy takes a significant dive in the first few weeks of DTS. The lives and health of loved ones is far more important than an extra hour of play time in daylight. Cutting a foot off the top of a blanket and sewing it on to the bottom of the blanket doesn't lengthen the blanket!

    I have always disliked daylight savings for a very long time. It does not benefit a majority of people. Farmers follow the sun not time, parents are sleep deprived, commuters are more likely to have wrecks. We DO NOT need DST. Please consider removing DST permanently. Thank You!

    More than 7 kids got killed this year while waiting for their school bus in the dark in early hours. Had the daylight savings been off, their would have been enough sunlight for the drivers to see these poor kids standing . Enough of this nonsense. Changing the clock saves nothing

    Leave the clocks alone.! Standard time Daylight savings time saves nothing! But causes frustration, raises blood pressure amo g other health issues. It has nothing to do with children. It’s all about stupid politicians.
