Interior Minister Eli Yishai is willing to consider returning to Standard Time a week after Yom Kippur, he said in Sunday's cabinet meeting.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) ends in two weeks on September 12, before Yom Kippur, moving the clock back by an hour.

More than 90,000 people have signed a petition in protest. The petition calls on the public to ignore the start of Standard Time and operate according to DST until the beginning of November.

According to the petition organizers, DST increases the likelihood of motor-vehicle accidents due to the increase in time spent driving during hours of darkness and costs millions of shekels for the Israeli economy.
