Aims to petition to End Daylight Saving Time
Consideration by the government to do away with the daylight saving time should be at the top of the list. This is because research done for a while has shown that the intended purpose of saving energy is not really working. The time that the daylight saving time was effective has long run out hence a need for other inventive methods.
There should be some requirements that should be met before the department of transportation responsible for the daylight saving time program makes its legal to run in any state. The regulations that should be considered include the places that many people worship, go to work, attend school, receive health services, the locations of buy and railway stations and not forgetting shipment of good and services. The evidence that not many places fulfill these requirements should be enough for the department of transportation, the government and any other governing authority that still supports this program for them to finally abandon it.
Another sector that experiences the inconveniences brought about by the daylight saving time program is the air transport sector. The fact that air travel is solely dependent on all the timing made, which will be altered in untold proportions really messes up the plans made by the airport. When the air transport system is crippled some business people may have missed important meetings that would have brought in extra capital to the country all because the daylight saving time program has its grip deep within these states.
In addition to the problems that the daylight saving time program brings in its wake include health issues that immediately state when the program begins. The health problems being talked about include a rise in child security issues, increased vehicle accidents, increased work injuries and an ever rising number in heart attacks.
The rising number of child security issues is due to the fact that these kids now have to leave for school in the dark and leave late in the evenings, this leaves a large window for some dangerous people to take advantage of their weakness and vulnerability, especially girls. With the program now depicting that people have to be up earlier and drive in the dark to reach their jobs ,makes them susceptible to accidents since the probability of being in an accident is higher in the dark than it is when its daylight.
Furthermore, it was been observed that during the time that the program was in effect, more workers report work related injuries, this is because they have to work more hours and in between some accidents may occur which may not have happened because they maybe more tired than normal. To finish up, this program requires procedures to be put in place that use up valuable funds, time and effort that could be channeled into other useful sectors of the economy hence the need to get rid of it.
