Abolishing Daylight Saving Time is a terrible idea.  Eliminating the longer days in the Spring and Fall will eliminate the free time I have with my children and directly and negatively impact their ability to participate in sports. Fitting an evening soccer practice, baseball practice or baseball game before it gets dark is already a difficult task with the longer Daylight Savings days. Myself and most of the parents of the children on my kids’ soccer and baseball teams work until 5:00-5:30.  Practices are usually scheduled at 6:00 so people can grab their kids after work and take them to practice. Eliminating Daylight Savings Time would mean moving practices to 5:00 and require me to either leave work early and miss out on the practice and that time with my kids.  I don’t get the benefit of eliminating those extra hours of daylight but I certainly understand what would be lost.
