in thread Daylight saving time in my region should be...

I can just about remember when I was a child, there was an experimant here in the UK of using Summer Time all thorough the year and it was very hard to get up for school in what felt like the middle of the night. Apparently the statistics from that period do should an overall reduction in traffic accident deaths but this is probably more due to the fact that drink-driving laws were introduced at about the same time.

    I thought folks were getting up in the dark as it is, so I checked, and sunrise was at 7:30am today. Most people who start at 9:00 probably do get a hint of light when they get up, or see light shortly thereafter. This is a good counter argument.

    One of the things that influences my opinion is that my time zone is incredibly large. When I went on a trip last month (6 weeks from the shortest day), the sun was setting at 3:30pm! (And I was still a 12 hour drive from the Eastern-most tip of the time zone!)

    I can remember that. It was strange going to school in the dark but the upside was being able to sneak into the school building early and hide in a dark but warm classroom rather than shivering outside! Happy days :-)

    Cheers,
