Making Indiana a Central Time Zone state would come with its own problems. (Anyone excited for 4:21 p.m. sunsets in December?) But the point they were making — in the case of the State Board of Education, when it comes to getting to school safely — could be solved by returning daylight-saving time to pre-2007 start and end dates.
Do we really need that extra hour of light in the evening while we’re still waiting for spring? Or, as Tyson suggests, are we just fooling ourselves?
It’s time to manage the clock a bit better and reel in daylight-saving time — before a pre-dawn school bus crash or a kid hit in a dark crosswalk forces the situation.
