“Stop Wasting Your Precious Time”

Daylight Saving Time, where did it come from and why did it start? According to www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/history.html (copyright Time and Date AS 1995-2013.); the idea of taking advantage of the sun or natural daylight started by Benjamin Franklin hundreds of years ago—though there is some controversy by others who actually was credited with suggesting the idea. Some say George Vernon Hudson did it in 1895, and yet others suggest that William Willet was the one who actually came up with the idea of moving the time clocks ahead in the summer and backwards in the fall to take advantage of the natural sun and be able to produce more in the fields or save energy in the cold. DST was later implemented in The United States by President Franklin D. Roosevelt from Feb. 9, 1942 to Sept. 30, 1945 during WWII year-round to help in the battle. It was then called “Eastern War time”, “Central War Time”, and “Pacific War Time”—until after Japan’s surrender—then it was referred to as “Peace Time”.

Daylight Savings time is now used in over 70 countries around the world and the times periods vary depending on where you are. But, for most of us in the U. S., the times used now –implemented by President Bush in 2007—follows the Energy Policy Act of 2005—which starts Daylight Savings Time on the second Sunday of March when our clocks are set one hour ahead, and ends on the 1st Sunday in November when we set our clocks back one hour. Now that you’ve gotten a brief history of why and where DST came from, what are you going to do with all that “extra time” on your hands you’ve gained this past weekend by setting your clocks back?

Well, we all know that time is a precious commodity for all of us—but especially for the trucking industry and its tight schedules for deliveries and pickups—that help keep all of America moving on smoothly and seamlessly day after day. So, who wants to spend their new found extra hour sitting in the Department of Motor Vehicles office waiting for your number to be called just to get a simple registration for your commercial trailers? I mean, with all the technology we have today, isn’t there a better way to do this for the busy truck driver to make the most of their time?
