  • DST can impact people’s circadian rhythms, which may cause drowsiness, moodiness, sleep problems, and other health risks.
  • The spring transition to DST increases fatal traffic accidents by 6% in the US.
  • Making daylight savings permanent would drastically reduce deer collisions on the road, killing 37,000 fewer deer each year.
  • Due to loss of sleep and productivity, one workforce consultant estimated the biannual time change costs the US over $430 million a year.
  • A study of newly implemented DST in Indiana found that the switch led to a 1% rise in residential electricity use, increasing total residential electricity bills by an estimated $9 million annually.
