Your Views: Daylight saving time causes more problems than it solves

POSTED: March 5, 2014 1:00 a.m.

The continuing fiasco of daylight saving time use is long past justification. Economic cost due to associated problems, confusion, schedule disruption, etc., exceed any savings.

Split the difference: Move time a half-hour and leave it alone year-round thereafter. Ben Franklin spoke of it in 1784 and federal laws continue it. The world has changed; Franklin is long gone and it’s time for daylight saving time to do the same.
