The importance of safety should never be replaced by profits. The majority of consumers trust that those who manufacture, operate, and maintain roller coasters, Ferris Wheels, zip lines, bounce houses, water slides, bungee jumps, and other devices are meticulous and follow a high standard of safety protocols. Unfortunately, far too many amusement ride manufacturers, operators, and maintenance crew members fail to put safety first and neglect to care for rides in the ways they require to stay functional.
Consumers Deserve the Truth
The amusement park website, found at http://www.amusementparkaccidents.com, provides a wide range of information about the scope of thrill rides and recreational activities, including, but not limited to: Overview of Industry (What You Need to Know); Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs); Safety Blog; News Library; Park Safety; Roller; Coaster Mechanics; Types of Accidents; Types of Rides; 4th Dimension Coaster; Other Recreations;
Deregulation of the Amusement Ride Industry
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) authority over amusement rides is limited to those that are “not permanently fixed to a site.” As such, rides at amusement parks and water parks are not regulated under federal safety standards. Moreover, no federal agency is responsible for investigating serious accidents or requiring amusement parks to fix hazards that could cause riders to suffer injuries or death. Only states and local entities are in charge of this as well as creating and enforcing their own amusement park safety and inspection regulations.
The lack of safety regulations on a federal scale for the amusement ride industry is an uneven foundation upon which millions of lives rely on. In an effort to help encourage the amusement ride industry to change its rules of operation to create and enforce federal safety regulations that are reasonable, effective, and strict, Reiff & Bily has created its new website to spread awareness and keep the public informed.
