Com requested to receive data from the DCA through the public record method, and we looked at the owner\'s name and ride status to determine where each event occurred.
If it\'s a car for a ride on a rides rental or tour company, we just list the name of the company.
We then classify each ride by type.
Because many of the rides categories standardized by the American Association for testing and materials are too broad for us, we decided to create our own categories.
For example, vertical rotation is a mechanical amusement facility that rotates vertically but faster than a Ferris wheel.
In addition, the DCA collects data directly from the operator or owner.
