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.

Changing the time upsets sleep, work, and leisure patterns. Makes you more tired as you try to adjust. Keep it simple; don't change the time. We can all be much happier, much happier, and more productive.

Daylight savings time was first enacted in 1918. 2018 would be the perfect year to move forward to Daylight Savings time for one last time and end the clock changing. I think most people are used to having extra daylight in the summer months and would prefer to be ahead one hour from now on. Even if it means being on standard time forever it would be a better compromise then switching twice a year. I will help support legislation in West Virginia.

In the US, ?Fast Time? as it was called then, was first introduced in 1918 when President Woodrow Wilson signed it into law to support the war effort during World War I. The initiative was sparked by Robert Garland, a Pittsburgh industrialist who had encountered the idea in the UK. Today he is often called the ?Father of Daylight Saving?. Only seven months, later the seasonal time change was repealed. However, some cities, including Pittsburgh, Boston, and New York, continued to use it until President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted year-round DST in the United States in 1942. Please Please stop the time change. It wreaks havoc on our body clocks to change it every FIVE-SIX months...this cannot be healthy...what is the reason for it NOW?? All who have signed this are serious! Don't ignore us.

Please stop changing our time! There is no benefit, only aggregation! Especially to us parents that have to deal with our children being grumpy and not getting enough sleep due to the time change!!

I don't understand why this is such a death march. Why could we not even try natural time for just one year, to see the difference? If there's nothing to be gained, why don't we scrap this? I would vote for any Presidential candidate who would do this.

There is an increase in car accidents the first week after we spring forward. Not to mention the myriad of other signs that we are all sleep deprived ... increase in stress levels, grumpiness, and attendance issues. Antiquated, unnecessary, and unsafe.

Changing our sleep wake cycle does not feel good. Especially for us who provide 24 hours care (nurses, doctors etc...). It takes me weeks to recover each time.

DST comes way too early now, and makes me feel odd! It is not natural to be so light at night this time of year. I can feel the same vague effects every year and it is not healthy.

It is time to move on from DST. It is confusing, useless, unhealthy, less safe and illogical in today's society. I don't know anyone who likes it except perhaps electric companies. Never, never have I heard someone say, "Great, It's DST. Now it will get become dark before I leave the office." Rather I hear universal complaints every single year.

Just as we are coming out of winter and getting more light in the mornings, this time change hits and makes it so those of us who have to get up early are getting up in the dark again. This is bad for our bodies and brains and bad for productivity. The days are naturally longer in the summer, there is NO NEED to artificially alter time! Please let's be on permanent standard time!!

Parents of young children complain about how much it negatively affects their kids behavior due to sleep changed. Adults experience increased risk of health problems as well as accidents for the 3 weeks after each time change. It does not save energy, it just shifts the time of use. School kids only gain 2 weeks of morning daylight to walk to school in the fall and then they get 2 weeks of darker mornings in the spring. It makes no sense. PLEASE stop it this year. It has been a week and a half and my body is still messed up.

I have noticed that it takes almost a full month for me to gain even a foothold on the schedule change. It really messes up mine and my children's lives and affects the entire day for weeks on end. I absolutely hate this practice

Yes, with daylight savings time, we have extra daylight at the end of the day, but then we have extra darkness at the beginning of the day which is dangerous for children walking to school, and in my case, walking my dog before going to work. Plus it wrecks havoc with my body clock.
