Statistics over four consecutive years showed that four percent
more automobile accidents happened in California during the week
following the switch to daylight saving time and during the week
following the switch back to standard time than occurred the week
before each event. These statistics show that these time changes

(A) Drivers in California as well as those in the rest of the United

similar increase in accident rates.
