Fun Truth that's different than what you learned on Twitter :
Daylights Saving Time increases traffic accidents ... for about two days. For the remainder of the eight months it's active it DECREASES traffic accidents.
As far as traffic accidents go, it's a huge net positive.
@apLundell Most of Canada is further north and the DST switch serves no purpose except to annoy and keep us in sync with 'murica. In December the day gets shorter than 8 hours anyways so shifting that window has little effect.
Where I live the sun rises at 8:30am at the end of DST, right when most eastbound commuters are just getting past driving in the sun then BAM sunrise is back to 7:30 and we have to drive into the sun again for 3 more weeks.
