Motorcycle deaths drop, but trend is worrisome
By JOAN LOWYThe Associated Press
WASHINGTON —Motorcycle deaths dropped 2percent in the first nine monthsof last year, but the report bystate transportation officialsmay signal just a blip, not alasting improvement in safety.There were 80 fewer motor-cycle deaths from Januarythrough September of 2010than in the same time frame theprevious year, said the report,scheduled for release Tuesdayby the Governors HighwaySafety Association.But fatalities had started toclimb back up during the lastthree of those nine months. Andthat has safety advocates wor-ried.“The drop is all in the fronthalf of the year,” said reportauthor Jim Hedlund, a safetyconsultant. “It looks very muchas if we’ve hit bottom and maybe starting back up again.”Fatalities were down 25 per-cent during the first three monthsof last year, and still down 1percent in next three monthsafter that. Then they went up 3percent in the third quarter of theyear, the report said.Annual motorcycle fatali-ties have more than doubledsince the late 1990s, peakingin 2008 at 5,312 deaths. Butthey plunged 16 percent in 2009as the economy tanked. Whatcaused the drop is a matter of debate.Jonathan Adkins, a spokes-man for the safety group thatissued the report, said recre-ational motorcycle ridingappears to have declined whilethe recession was at its worst,and that may explain why thenumber of deaths went down.Now that the economy isshowing signs of recovery,Adkins said he’s concerned arebound in recreational ridingwill lead to more deaths.But Jeff Hennie, vice presi-dent of the Motorcycle RidersFoundation, disagrees. He saidthe economy — especiallythe recent rise in gas prices —appears to have increased, notdecreased, motorcycle use.“If I have a choice betweendriving a pickup or my motor-cycle, I’m taking the motor-cycle that gets 50 miles pergallon,” Hennie said. “It’s notsport, it’s transportation.”A related data trend is alsoworrisome. The number of motorcyclists wearing federal-ly-approved, impact-absorbinghelmets dropped 13 percent inthe first nine months of 2010.At the same time, motorcyclistswearing so called “novelty” hel-mets — which are lightweightand offer little protection —rose 9 percent.A helmet that meets federalstandards reduces the wearer’schances of being killed in anaccident by about 40 percent,Hedlund said. The only reasonfor wearing a novelty helmet isto avoid getting ticketed for notwearing a helmet, he added.Twenty states require allmotorcycle riders to wear hel-mets, but only 13 states specifythat the helmets must meet fed-eral standards, according to theNational Transportation SafetyBoard. The board has urgedstates to require all riders towear helmets that meet federalstandards.Lobbying by motorcyclistgroups has led some states torepeal mandatory helmet laws.Meanwhile, BMW MotorradUSA said it will offer anti-lockbrakes as standard equipmenton all its 2012 model yearmotorcycles, the first manufac-turer to take that step. Improperbraking has been identified asa factor in many motorcyclecrashes. BMW said its salesaccount for less than 3 percentof the U.S. market.
“If I have achoice betweendriving a pickupor my motor-cycle, I’m takingthe motorcyclethat gets 50 milesper gallon. It’snot sport, it’stransportation.”

Porn company is amassing 1-800 numbers
NEW YORK (AP) — Foryears, teenagers across the U.S.could call a toll-free hotline if they had embarrassing questionsabout AIDS and safe sex. Dial thesame number now and you geta recording of giggling womenoffering to talk dirty to you.“We both have big appetitesfor sex,” they purr. “Pinch usand poke us. Spank us andtease us. We love it all. ... Enteryour credit card number now.”Those naughty misdials,and countless others like them,appear to be no accident.Records obtained by TheAssociated Press show that overthe past 13 years, a little-knownPhiladelphia company calledPrimeTel Communicationshas quietly gained controlover nearly a quarter of allthe 1-800 numbers in the U.S.and Canada, often by grab-bing them the moment theyare relinquished by previoususers. As of March, it admin-istered more 800 numbers thanany other company, includingVerizon and AT&T.And many, if not most, of those1.7 million numbers appear to beused for one thing: redirecting call-ers to a phone-sex service.Dial 1-800-Chicago andinstead of reaching a tourismhotline for the Windy City, youwill hear a woman offering “one-on-one talk with a nasty girl”for $2.99 per minute. A similarthing happens if you punch in theinitial digits of 1-800-Metallica,1-800-Cadillac, 1-800-Minolta,1-800-Cameras, 1-800-Worshipor 1-800-Whirlpool.All those numbers containmessages redirecting callers toerotic chat lines operated byNational A-1 Advertising, acompany that shares an officebuilding with PrimeTel, hascommon ownership and listsmany of the same people asexecutives or business con-tacts.ANDERSON, S.C.
