The American Academy of Sleep Medicine wants to eradicate daylight saving time for the sake of humanity.
Gizmodo reports the AASM says the twice-a-year shift in clocks not only inconveniences everyone but also increases health problems and car accidents.
They're not alone. Gizmodo reports that in 2020 alone, US lawmakers in at least 32 states introduced legislation to abolish it.
A recent study found that the first week of daylight saving time in the spring was associated with a greater number of fatal car crashes.
The same study also estimated that ending Daylight Savings Time would have prevented more than 600 deadly accidents over a 22-year span.
