Is It Safe to Use Sparklers and Fireworks in New Jersey?

According to the Courier-Post, the Garden State’s Senate recently approved a bill that would allow the use of non-exploding fireworks in New Jersey. Reportedly, under the proposed law, it would no longer be illegal to sell or possess non-exploding fireworks or sparklers in New Jersey. Non-exploding fireworks, or “novelties” as they are referred to in the bill, include smoke devices, snakes, party poppers, glow worms, drop pops and snappers. The bill does not allow the sale of sparklers or “novelties” to anyone under 16 years old. The bill is not law yet.

Is the Atlantic City Boardwalk’s Polarcoaster Going to Be Safe?

Per The Press of Atlantic City, the former site of the Sands casino will soon have a new resident in the form of a 350-foot vertical rollercoaster called the Polarcoaster. Construction on the amusement park is expected to begin later this year and plans are for the Polarcoaster to be open to the public in Summer 2019. The Polarcoaster should bring much-needed revenue to Atlantic City. However, it is important that the safety of those building, operating and riding the Polarcoaster take priority over economic concerns. A rollercoaster accident at a Six Flags in Maryland proves these rides can and do falter, and when they do, it endangers lives.
