        As every day passes the world becomes more and more enveloped in a
serious logistical problem. Every day you sit in bumper to bumper 5 MPH
traffic you should realize this. The concept of a 24 hour world should
have been implemented years ago.
        Instead of this five workday, nine hour business day, one hour
lunch, two fifteen minute break life, we should broaden our life to include
a different set of hours for normal operation. Instead of providing
structure, this limited work week provides chaos. Rush hour traffic is
a big enough argument. I should probably do some research into where
the idea of such a limited work week came from to better understand
it, but I feel it would not make sense regardless of where it came from.
        If everyone works 'business' hours you run into the first problem.
When am I supposed to go to the bank or the dry cleaners? If each
business stays open until five or six and everyone (or a large percentage)
works those same hours, how is anyone expected to visit the other
        Companies that stay open for long hours or 24 hours usually have
several advantages. For those who work normal business hours, they have
the opportunity to get things done. Instead of making special provisions
with your boss to get a few hours off, you can still do it before or
after work. The companies that keep longer hours get the business of those
who can't make those provisions.
        Aside from getting more business, those companies typically
have time to do night stocking, cleaning, and merchandising all while
making money. Between the additional time to work around the store
and the ability to make more customers happy by providing your service,
they come out on top.

        The traffic during the rush to and from work is responsible for
a good percentage of accidents. These accidents cause slow traffic
as people do everything in their power to watch what is going on.
In many cases I have seen traffic slow anywhere up to 40 MPH below
the speed limit to watch the aftermath of an accident. The worst case
was a sudden 20 MPH drop while people watched a single tow truck hook
up a car. No police, no fire trucks, no ambulance, etc.
        I currently live 70 minutes from work and it is all highway
driving. Often times it takes more than an hour and a half to get there,
and over an hour and a half to get back. Some trips have averaged about
40-55 MPH (the speed limit being 65-75) for large portions of the drive.
If the population's work schedules were spread out over a 24 hour period
the traffic problems would thin out.

        In my last apartment I kept running into a small problem that
could have been avoided with longer work hours. Almost every morning
around 7 or 8 I would be woken up by one thing or another. Some days
it was the maintenance crew banging on one thing, someone honking outside
of my window, or the cleaning people sandblasting the sidewalk. Not
everyone keeps normal hours by choice.

        Its not something I or anyone could prove without implementation,
but I feel more people would be more productive and much more happy
if the stress caused by such a chaotic lifestyle were removed. The stress
of rush hour traffic, getting to work on time, rushing to pick up
laundry or go to the bank, then rush home is often times overwhelming.
Its time for a change... for the better.
