Time Change Riots
Patrons of bars that stay open
past 2 a.m. lose one hour of drinking time on the day when daylight
saving time springs forward one hour. This has led to annual problems
in numerous locations, and sometimes even to riots. For example, at a
“time disturbance” in Athens, Ohio, site of Ohio University, over one
thousand students and other late night partiers chanted “Freedom” as
they threw liquor bottles at the police attempting to control the riot.
Just when you thought it was safe to turn back your clocks. Here are some more interesting antecdotes on DST.
