    Both Schwartz [former traffic commissioner of New York City] and Steve Calandrillo, a professor of law at the University of Washington, advocate for extending daylight saving time to be year round. “Four hundred lives would be saved if we went to year-round daylight saving time,” Calandrillo said. “Darkness in the evening hours is much more deadly than in the morning hours—there are more drivers on the road and more children playing outdoors.” Smith’s study notes that crime rates fall during periods of more light in the evening. Calandrillo says he has warned legislators who are considering moving their state to standard time that eliminating the week of fatalities that they're missing the greater risk. "Standard time is far more deadly than daylight saving time. You want to put sunlight when people are awake." (3/11/16)
