歐盟擬廢除冬夏令時間 2018.09.21
19552 19552

歐盟國家有分冬令和夏令時間,夏季將時鐘「撥快」一小時,冬季將時鐘「撥慢」一小時,可讓冬季日間以及夏季傍晚,有額外時間的日光。最近歐盟的調查發現,八成歐盟公民反對採用夏令及冬令時間交替制,因此建議成員國劃一採用夏令時間。為了配合夏季白天時間較長,自1980年起許多北美和歐洲國家都會實行夏令時間,至2002年歐盟成員國才劃一跟隨使用。

夏令時間的危險
夏令時間實施後的翌日,不少人的生理時鐘會因為突然少掉或多出一小時而造成混亂,因此當日會被人稱為「昏昏欲睡星期一」或「危險星期一」。車禍發生的機會比較高,但這些增加的風險會在該周的周末逐漸減少。

EU countries used to have summertime and wintertime hours. During summer, they went forward by one hour, then they went backward one hour during winter. This means people had one more hour of sunlight in winter mornings and summer evenings. Recently, an EU survey found that 80% of EU citizens opposed going back and forth during different seasons. The EU then recommended all its members to stick with summertime hours. To go along with having more sunlight hours during summer, many countries in North America and Europe had already been following summertime hours since 1980, but the remaining EU nations only started doing so in 2002.
