I expect the quote about exams only referred to those in the pay booths, as they have to be able to read the numbers on the till buttons

Modern engineering and materials coupled with computer control should make this sort of thing impossible.
The ride must be badly designed if it allows operators to crash cars together. It should be scrapped.
