The Brain Injury Association of America, working at the request of Congressman Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ), has completed its comprehensive study of the correlation between brain injuries and roller coaster rides and has concluded that "the overwhelming majority of riders will suffer no ill effects" and that the "risk of brain injury from a roller coaster is not in the rides, but in the riders." The study was released today in Washington, D.C.
