The summer carnival season is winding down, but that’s not stopping lawmakers from working to make sure rides are safe.
A new audit out of Albany says the State Labor Department's efforts to inspect amusement park rides during the summer have been thorough, but more work is needed to ensure the safety of fair-goers. State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says he will continue to send auditors to inspect rides throughout the rest of summer.
The audit by the State Comptroller's office came after two workers were injured while taking down a ride at the Spencerport Volunteer Fireman's Carnival in June.
