Talk of reviving Wisconsin’s motorcycle helmet law will go nowhere; better to spend the effort cracking down on the noise-makers who destroy the peace of summer

A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing motorcycle helmets save lives and maybe money has prompted talk of making helmet use mandatory in Wisconsin again.

    Our prediction: It won’t happen.

    Freedom is central to the motorcycle-riding ethos. A law that required helmets for all motorcycle riders in Wisconsin was repealed in the 1970s in the face of an impressive show of libertarian fervor. There is no way the Legislature is going to reprise the trampling of riders’ liberty.

    Wisconsin, in fact, is so in thrall of motorcycle riders’ freedom that laws regulating obnoxious motorcycle noise go largely unenforced.

    But back to helmets. The CDC report noted that motorcycles represent 3% of the vehicles on American roads but account for 14% of the traffic fatalities. It found that states that require helmets for all motorcycle riders have fewer fatal motorcycle accidents. And it deduced that states with helmet laws saved $1.3 billion in health care costs associated with motorcycle accidents.

    It’s not news that helmets prevent deaths and injuries. Tons of research data confirm that. Anecdotal evidence abounds as well, as in this ironic example: In New York state last July 4 one of the riders in a demonstration protesting the state’s helmet law slammed on his brakes, flipped over his motorcycle’s handlebars, hit his head on the pavement and was killed. A police investigation determined a helmet would have saved his life.


    The part about saving health-care money, on the other hand, is less than a compelling argument for helmet laws. Unhealthy behavior of many kinds—smoking too many cigarettes, drinking too much alcohol and eating too much food, to name three—surely add more to society’s health-care cost burden than helmetless motorcycle riders.

    Helmet laws don’t protect the general public; they protect riders. So why shouldn’t riders have the freedom to not use a helmet. They also have the freedom to do the obviously sensible thing and wear one.

    Better that lawmakers would spend their time dealing with motorcycle behavior that does injure the public by enacting stiffer laws regulating motorcycle noise and mandating their enforcement.

     Wisconsin already has a law requiring motorcycle and automobile exhausts to be muffled. A car with a malfunctioning muffler generating even half the decibels of an illegal motorcycle is a ticket waiting to happen. But when is the last time anyone saw a motorcyclist pulled over for making too much noise?

    Everyone knows the noise we’re referring to—the shocking-to-the-ears staccato detonations of an unmuffled motorcycle being revved for maximum cacophonous effect.

    Make no mistake, this is the work of outlaws, not the majority of motorcycle owners. Motorcycles must comply with federal noise standards when they are manufactured. Those that are an affront to civilized sound standards have been modified expressly to make outrageous noise.

    For the small percentage of owners who flaunt the law, the motorcycle ethos we mentioned is not just about freedom, but about showing off. For them, the allure of motorcycles is more than the open road and wind in their hair. It’s also the apparent thrill of firing up a straight-pipe Harley and roaring through towns, neighborhoods and the countryside destroying the ambience of a summer evening.

    Here’s a plan for Wisconsin: Let motorcycle riders keep the freedom to ride without a helmet. Take away the freedom of the noise-making show-offs to assault the ears of the public.



 
Three Rs plus breakfast, health and more PDF Print E-mail

“I don’t think we as a school district need to provide breakfast to children. That should be the parents’ responsibility.”
 
   Had Steve Burmesch, a member of the Northern Ozaukee School Board, said that a decade or so ago it’s likely everyone on the board would have agreed with him. But when he said it last week, no one agreed and all but Burmesch voted to make breakfast at school available to Northern
Ozaukee students. Times change.

    The decision has no financial impact—the cost will be covered by federal subsidies and fees paid by students of $1.25 or $1.50 for breakfast unless they qualify for free or reduced price meals—but it is yet another sign of the increasing demands put on public schools as households with two parents working outside of the home have become the norm and single-parent homes become more common and more parent responsibilities become school responsibilities.

    The principals of the Northern Ozaukee Elementary School and Middle School told the board that many children in their buildings come to school without having had breakfast. A contributing factor is that some middle school and high school students have to be on the school bus by 6:30 a.m.

    When the new school year begins, a significant number of Northern Ozaukee students, like kids at many public schools across the country, will be getting two-thirds of their daily nutrition at school.

    (That’s true for a number of elementary school children in the Port Washington-Saukville School District, where volunteers provide a daily breakfast program.)

    As schools’ responsibilities expand beyond their basic reason for existence—to educate children—they are increasingly expected to help solve problems that were once dealt with in the home. Schools are now told to not just provide food for one or two meals a day, but to provide the right kind of food. They’re expected to be part of the solution for the problem of increasing child obesity, a trend that has health experts in a high state of alarm.

More parental responsibilities, like that so-called most important meal of the day, are being added to the list of demands on public schools

A third of Americans 2 to 19 years old are overweight, more than triple the percentage of 30 years ago. Physicians with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn that the consequences of this will be more unhealthy children, adolescents and adults, including many victims of an epidemic of diabetes.

    For a long time, school lunches were overloaded with fat and sugar and were part of the problem, but less so today. Federal guidelines, in spite of the famously nonsensical interference by Congress to ensure that pizza makers get their share of federally subsidized school lunch business by classifying pizza’s tomato paste content as a vegetable serving, now call for healthier menus.

    But these are guidelines, not mandates, and school meal offerings in many schools still consist of a lot of what students are perceived to want to eat, rather than what they should eat. To be sustainable, school meal programs have to be popular with the students whose families pay for them.

    It’s surprising school boards don’t spend more time on this issue. Contractors and staffs that provide meals for students should be expected to
explain and justify the meals’ nutritional content.

    Schools have another role to play in dealing with student obesity—by providing adequate physical education for students in every grade, starting with kindergarten.

    There is no mystery to child obesity. It’s caused by too many calories and too little activity. The structured activity provided by good physical education classes has never been more important than it is today. Even school districts that have resisted the temptation to cut back on physical education in the face of funding pressure could be doing a better job. Daily phy ed for every student should be the goal.

    Perhaps the cheering over the decreasing share of tax dollars going to public schools could be interrupted long enough to consider an initiative to strengthen that part of school curriculums that can help keep students healthy.

    Society demands a lot of public schools. It needs to give them the wherewithal to deliver it.

The political organization that published citizens’ voting habits believed to be private alienated voters and likely cost its favored candidate votes

The astonishing amount of money spent to influence voters in the Wisconsin governor recall election is well documented: $63.5 million total; $30.5
million raised by Scott Walker (two-thirds from outside the state); $3.9 million raised by Tom Barrett (one-fourth from outside of Wisconsin).

    Not documented is how effectively the money was spent. It is hard to measure this, but a news story in last week’s Ozaukee Press made it
pretty clear that one election ploy financed by a political organization was a colossal waste of money.

    We’ll call it, for want of an official name, the Shame Your Neighbor into Voting initiative. It was a scheme by the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund
intended to help Barrett win, but it was such a ham-handed, tone-deaf maneuver that it could well have generated more votes for Walker than for
the challenger.

    The group sent letters to registered voters, including a number in Port Washington, that contained information about the voting habits of the
recipients and a dozen of their neighbors. The letters included names and addresses and indicated whether or not those listed voted in the 2008
and 2010 elections.  

    One version of the letter declared, “Scott Walker won in 2010 because too many people stayed home.” The purpose of the letter apparently was
to motivate people to get after non-voting neighbors and persuade them to mend their ways by voting for Barrett.

    Judging from the response of recipients interviewed by the Press, the ploy was not just ineffective, it was offensive. The presumption that the
recipients and their neighbors would vote for Barrett was irritating enough, but what really got under the skin of people was the publishing in the
letters of information about the citizens’ individual voting behavior.

    The names of registered voters who voted in state elections are a public record, yet anyone with a shred of sensitivity would understand that the
use of that information as a campaign tactic would not sit well with voters.


    The secret ballot—that sacred guarantee that you can vote your conscience without fear of retribution—is fundamental to the American
democracy. The letters didn’t violate that because they couldn’t; whom voters cast their votes for is not public information. Yet they certainly left the
impression voters’ privacy was being invaded.

    No surprise, then, that one of the aggrieved recipients who talked to an Ozaukee Press reporter said, “I’ve always felt that the election booth
was personal and private.”

    Or that another said, “I was aggravated.” Or that one Port resident described it as “more dirty politics.”

    Who would not expect those responses? Only the politically tone deaf.

    But noteworthy beyond the obtuseness showcased here is the bogus notion that it is a sin against democracy to refrain from voting. In America,
voting is a right, not a duty, and public shaming of those who opt not to exercise that right is shameful in itself.

    As it turned out, almost every voter in Ozaukee County—an amazing 82%—did vote in last week’s election. It’s not likely any of that was due to
the “Shame Your Neighbor” letters.

    The same cannot be said of money spent in the barrage of television ads and telephone calls that attacked one candidate or the other.  It was a
contentious election in a polarized state and the millions spent fed the rancor on both sides and thus heightened interest in the election and surely

influenced some voters in their ballot choices.

    Make no mistake, money influences elections when it’s spent in clever, slick and effective ways.          So it was in a way encouraging to see the
klutzy “Shame Your Neighbor” gaffe fall on its face and prove that not everyone shoveling money into elections to manipulate voters knows what
they’re doing.
