During this last week of Daylight Saving Time, let’s examine this policy of keeping DST this late in the season.

The only reason it goes so late is so that Halloween’s trick-or-treaters will have more daylight. Meanwhile, we are sending our kids off to school in the dark. Every year it seems there is some tragedy related to dark morning commuting. DST should be only for the real summer months of June, July and August and can be corrected by the Legislature.

Utah, take the lead and return DST to its original purpose of having more daylight in the summer and end DST on Labor Day.
