I do. But I personally curse the increased amount of bird poop on my car from new hatchlings (in the Spring) and migrating flocks way, way more!

No no no! We all have to go to work and school at the same time so that we can clog up the freeways.

Yeah, that won't be near as disruptive as DST. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Ok, I'll bite:

1) Such changes wouldn't affect everyone, as is the case with DST (in the 48 states that have it). Why make everyone adjust clocks so that schools can start at 8 AM (or whatever time)? Does that make sense? Really?

2) Why not start schools at a time that allows daylight in the morning in December, and just keep it there? The objection from some parents, of course, is how do I get my kids off to school in time and still get to work? Well, how about changing your work hours to better mesh with the new school schedule. "No, we can't do that!" Why not? "Because we've always started at ____ AM, that's why!"

Sorry I just don't buy the usual arguments. Everyone should have to change to DST to accommodate tradition? Why?

3) In some places, e.g. Anchorage, Alaska, children go to school in the dark in the Fall and Winter and somehow manage to do so safely. In the snow. Yes, it is possible.

So, take your pick: adjust school/work times or just deal with a few months of morning darkness.

I fully realize that we are so wedded to "the way things are done" that getting rid of DST is very unlikely. But there are decent arguments against the practice and many of the reasons for it range from shaky to outright fallacious.

Just sayin' ...

More likely because the boss says, "No"...so the other option is to be unemployed...but at least you wouldn't have had to change your clock!

Anyway, it just ain't no big thing. We've been doing it for a long time, and it's here to stay.

True, that.

Suppose that DST didn't exist. I would think that work/school schedules would have evolved into some sort of equilibrium that accommodates parents of school age children. And that such a thing could happen if DST was eliminated. Not that getting rid of DST will happen, of course.

24 hour option will not change.

Had my 2015 SL in for some minor collision repairs. Now I find the the toggle for 12/12 or 24 hour setting does not work. I go into Settings, Clock, and click on the on/off button. The light goes on and off, but it remains on the 24 hour setting, which I do not like. Hardly worth setting up a service appointment, guess I will just wait until the next 6 month service. I called the Leaf hotline, they have never heard of this problem.

The clock behind the steering wheel is controlled by the menu buttons by your left knee, not the Settings menu with the MFD screen.
