Re “Daylight saving time: Why must we lose an hour of sleep?” (Page A1, March 7): I agree it would be better not to change our clocks twice a year. I recommend that we stay on Daylight Savings Time year-round. I think a couple states have decided to do that. It’s much better to have the extra hour of light in the evening.
More crimes against people occur in the evening than in the morning so the extra light will make it safer for us and our children. The longer evening will accommodate youth sports and other outdoor activities. I enjoy being able to get things done in the yard and around the house after work. Psychologically, I don’t mind driving to work in the dark, but I sure don’t like coming home in the dark. Let’s tell our legislators that we want to stay on DST year-round, not change back and forth.
