Bring me sunshine – how changing BST could save lives

Posted in: Bicycle Accidents Motorcycle Accidents Road Traffic Accidents 

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) is calling for changes to British Summer Time (BST), to give us more daylight hours in the evening.

According to the IAM, bringing the British time zone forward by an hour in both winter and summer would mean more light in the evenings, when crashes are more likely.

Figures from the Department for Transport show that changing the daylight hours could prevent about 80 deaths and at least 200 serious injuries on our roads each year. It would also align the hours of daylight to the waking and working hours of the vast majority of the population.

IAM chief executive Simon Best said: “Making evenings lighter would save lives. While an extra hour of daylight would help to make the commute home much safer for all road users, children, cyclists and motorcyclists would benefit most.
