Kentucky: Support House Bill 257
Please contact Governor Bevin today to support House Bill 257, rider responsibility legislation in Bluegrass State! This legislation passed the House and Senate and has moved to the governor’s desk.
Safety is the attractions industry’s number one priority.
In addition to the steps that manufacturers and facility operators take to provide their guests a safe experience, maintaining a high level of individual responsibility by following rules and verbal reminders is the single most important thing that guests can do to maximize their personal safety on rides.
Guests must take ride safety very seriously. Even though amusement rides are extremely safe and fun, breaking the rules, taking daring risks to impress friends, or trying to increase the thrill by ignoring warnings is dangerous and violates park policies.
Rider responsibility legislation would help in deterring riders from engaging in certain conduct that may increase the risk of injury to the rider, to other riders on the ride or to employees working at the location.
House Bill 257 codifies the rider’s duty to follow rules, heed warnings, and obey instructions. This is an important component of amusement safety regulation and one that the industry supports.
Help support the attractions industry by urging Governor Bevin to SUPPORT House Bill 257.
