  Our daylight hours more than double during the course of the year. Our maximum 16 hours and 50 minutes of sunlight in the longest day in June dwindles to Author: Mary Griffin. Today, daylight saving time is observed in nearly 80 countries around the world, including the European Union, the USA, Canada, and Russia. The benefits of daylight saving time in energy management have been questioned since it was first introduced during World War I and the latest research has led to varying results. Meanwhile, adverse effects of seasonal time shifts on human biology have Cited by: 1.

Introduce single double summer time (SDST) These estimates include the consideration of implementation, casualty changes, journey times, fuel use and emissions. This is intended to help understand the potential for prioritising these options and inform considerations about routes and agencies best placed to take different options forward.

Applying these estimates to road casualty figures for Scotland implies potential reductions of around 20 deaths or serious injuries and.

Should adopt 'Double British Summer Time' (DBST) (also known as 'Single/Double Summer Time'). Under this system, sunrise and sunset would occur one hour later than at present, except during four weeks in October. This report considers the likely effect on road accidents in Great Britain.

The number of people killed or seriously injured would fall by about ( per cent of the national total) and the number injured at any severity would fall by about ( per cent). The Summertime Act of established two clock changes per year. During the second world war, double British summer time was invented as an energy-saving device, effectively putting the country on the same footing as mainland Europe - GMT+1 in the winter, and GMT+2 in the summer.

The influence of Daylight Saving Time upon motor vehicle fatal traffic accidents. Accident Analysis and Prevention:  The most recent research estimates that adopting Single/Double Summer Time would have the net effect of saving around 80 lives and serious injuries a year confirming earlier research which showed that the /71 experiment, when British Standard Time (GMT + 1) was employed all year round (the clocks were advanced in March and not put.

Road casualty rates increase with the arrival of darker evenings and poor weather. For example, in there were more than twice as many pedestrian deaths in December as in June [3].

It has been observed that each year from when the clocks go back in October, the peak in evening road casualties shifts so it falls in the hour after sunset [4]. The evidence that casualty rates, particularly fatal and serious injuries, are higher in darkness has led to several investigations of the potential road safety effects of adopting so called Single/Double Summer Time (SDST).

This research shows a strong case for a move to Single/Double Summer Time as far as London is concerned. Likely benefits can be quantified for a reduction in road casualties, an increase in energy efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. There would also be a boost to tourism.

Background Bills have been put forward in the UK and Republic of Ireland proposing a move to Central European Time (CET). Proponents argue that such a change will have benefits for road safety, with daylight being shifted from the morning, when collision risk is lower, to the evening, when risk is higher.

The impact of year-round Daylight Saving Time upon traffic deaths and injuries.Road casualty rates currently increase with the arrival of darker evenings and worsening weather conditions. Every autumn when the clocks go back, and sunset occurs earlier in the day, road casualties rise, and the effects are worse for the most vulnerable road users such as children, the elderly, cyclists and motorcyclists.
