I have a cheaper solution: Florida should opt out of daylight-saving time. That is the main reason why all those kids were hit this month. We send those we love off to school in darkness where they become stealth targets for motorists. The best solution would be to turn our clocks back an hour in mid-September instead of late October. We would get the benefits of extended summer days, but then revert to standard time when school begins. Kids need that hour of light in the morning more than we do in the evening.
