Ride Safety Inspections A Priority At State Fair

CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – This weekend millions of North Texans will visit the State Fair of Texas, enjoying all the fried food and rides the iconic festival has to offer.

CBS 11 News gained access to an inspection of all 73 rides to ascertain whether or not they’re safe.

“We just inspect everyday and if you don’t let the little things go you’re going to find success,” said State Fair Ride Inspector, Rusty Fitzgerald, who leads a team of five inspectors.

The State Fair gets the biggest and best rides that can be transported. But that hasn’t made it immune to accidents and injuries. Thus inspections are necessary to keep fair goers safe.

“How often do you find problems on a ride? You could go around right now and see these rides being set up right now and find 1 or 2 small details that need to be corrected,” said Fitzgerald.
