Motorists opposed to time-change last Sunday

Motorists opposed to time-change last Sunday

70% of UK motorists are against the clocks having gone back by one-hour last Sunday, according to a new survey by Smart Witness. The time change saw the UK reverting to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) from British Standard Time (BST).

The poll also revealed that 60% of drivers feel that lives could potentially be saved by keeping on GMT throughout the year. The main reason for opposing the upcoming time change was the increased number of roadside deaths involving school children, due to the darker afternoons.

Smart Witness managing director Simon Marsh said: “The findings from the survey were very clear: the vast majority of people in England do not want the clocks to go back in October and think the road safety is one of the main reasons why the law needs to change."

Statistics provided by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) from 2011 show that pedestrian deaths rose from 25 in September to 34 in October, 48 in November and up to 65 in December.
