March 7, 2008, Newsletter Issue #105: Reasons to Avoid Operating a JetSki or Boating While Intoxicated

Tip of the Week

The government and political action groups have taken great strides in educating people about drunk driving. Boating while intoxicated, however, is not as common a problem across the country and therefore has not received the same amount of attention. However, here are many reasons to avoid using a personal watercraft or boating while intoxicated:

• Boats are controlled by both people and water—the open water has influence on a boat's path
• You must remain aware when boating and boating while intoxicated will hamper your abilities
• If you are the owner of a Jet Ski or other personal watercraft, you are harder to see than a larger boat & intoxication hinders judgment
• Boating while intoxicated can also lead to losing your craft if you are charged

*Safety and freedom are the main reasons why you should avoid boating while intoxicated.
