Accidents to be reduced by moving the clocks forward?

As the day approaches for all our clocks to go ahead an hour, the independent road safety charity Brake is calling on the government to move clocks ahead an hour all year round.

If the Lighter Later campaign was to be successful there would be less daylight hours in the morning when most people are asleep, but in the evenings, when a lot of people are on the roads, it would stay light for longer.

This would increase the safety of pedestrians and cyclists while simultaneously reducing the number of road accidents, which could bring down car insurance premiums.

Over 26,300 people have written in support of the campaign to their MPs in the last year. Despite this, a Daylight Saving Bill that would have allowed Whitehall to review the changing of the clocks ran out of time in January.

“The change would also promote healthier lifestyles and stronger communities as it would encourage more people to get out and about on foot and bicycle,” said Julie Townsend, Brake’s deputy chief executive.

Clocks go forward at 01:00 GMT on Sunday to begin British Summer Time. It comes to an end when clocks go back an hour on October 28th.ADNFCR-1789-ID-801325399-ADNFCR
