Daylight saving 'should be scrapped'

Used car drivers could be safer on the roads 365 days a year if daylight saving was scrapped.

This Sunday (March 25th) the clocks go forward, which means it will stay lighter for longer in the evenings.

Lighter Later is campaigning to have the system removed altogether and Gem Motoring Assist has thrown its backing behind the scheme.

David Williams, chief executive officer of the body - which has a network of over 6,000 recovery vehicles in the UK - said road users, businesses, campaigners and MPs all need to support the motion to disband daylight saving.

"Lighter evenings throughout the year will make our roads a safer place by increasing visibility and, in turn, help to reduce the dangers to pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike," he added.

Mr Williams went on to note consumers will also save on their electricity bills, because they will not need to use lights as often.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801324736-ADNFCR
