Stop Daylight Savings

Daylight savings does not benefit our world in anyway anymore. It was designed so farmers had more sunlight in their day. With modern technology we no longer need those few extra hours and it benefits only a very small portion of the US. Arizona has had ZERO trouble with not having daylight savings.

Science even says our bodies don't agree with it!
Setting your clock forward 1 hour for DST in spring might mean losing an hour of sleep on the morning after the change. For some people, this may just be a minor annoyance. However, the lack of sleep can have unfortunate effects in those predisposed.

A Swedish study found that the risk of having a heart attack increases in the first 3 weekdays after switching to DST in the spring.

Tiredness induced by the clock change is thought to be the main cause for the increase in traffic accidents on the Monday following the start of DST

On Mondays after the start of DST there were more workplace injuries, and the injuries were of greater severity compared with other Mondays.

The start of DST has also been linked to miscarriages for in vitro fertilization patients.
