Is That Ride Safe?

Think your kids are safe when they get on that ride at the traveling carnival or theme park? Think again, says Elizabeth Williamson of The Washington Post.

She was on my KMOX show this afternoon to explain that those rides are rarely inspected, and some of them have abysmal safety records, but no one does anything about them. In fact, there's so little oversight that no outside agency is even allowed to inspect anything at theme parks like DisneyWorld, so there's no way of knowing about accidents or problems.

Listen.
