Recent reports of deaths and injuries from amusement park rides have prompted reports on how inspections are conducted in states across the U. S.
Associated Press reports that Oklahoma is one state that takes inspections of fair and carnival rides seriously. "All amusement rides, from go-carts and rental inflatables to the roller coasters at Six Flags Inc.'s Frontier City, are inspected by the Oklahoma Department of Labor.
"Only two injuries were reported to the Department of Labor through May this year, both of them go-cart accidents at the Incredible Pizza Company in Tulsa."
