You are concerned that safety inspectors' reports show that 12% of equipment ("rides") that is inspected fails an inspection in any given year. However, only 0.02% of such equipment each year has suffered incidents that resulted in payments for damages or injury. There are 15,500 pieces of equipment in North America.
