Abolish the Daylight Savings Time

Sun, Jul 8, 2018

The European Union is hosting a non-binding vote in order to determine the view of its citizens on keeping or abolishing the daylight savings time. Originally implemented as an energy saver this has long been debunked. More heating during the winter months actually more than offsets the energy savings due to extended daylight time. In addition, the time shift has been known to cause psychological issues with a lot of people. In addition, the rate of accidents spikes each time the clocks are shifted due to people being more tired on average.

The EU vote is non-binding but this is the chance to actually show them your oppinion on the matter!
