John,
 
Here’s another case where the media likely changed a word and could affect the message.
 
The press release that we provide for police department’s to use states, “Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists and where motorcycle crashes occur.”
 
The newspaper printed, “Extra patrols will be stationed in areas where motorcycle crashes often happen.

Berkeley PD to hold motorcycle safety operation
 Saturday, July 30, 2011
 
 BERKELEY, Calif. -- With motorcycle fatalities an issue in California, the Berkeley Police Department is working to reduce deaths and injuries with a special safety operation today, police said.
Extra patrols will be stationed in areas where motorcycle crashes often happen, and officers will crack down on motorcycle and other vehicle traffic violations that often lead to motorcycle collisions, injuries and deaths, police said.
Data has shown that the causes of motorcycle-involved crashes often are speeding, unsafe turning and driving under the influence. Another major factor leading to crashes is inexperienced riders, police said.
California is one of the top states for motorcycle deaths, according to police.
Police are reminding all motorists to be alert and watch for motorcycles, especially when turning or changing lanes.
Rider training is available through the California Motorcyclist Safety Program. Motorcyclists interested in the program can call 1-877-RIDE or visit www.CA-msp.org.
