Boating while impaired is illegal
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is on scene of a boat crash at Sand Key Rock jetty, where two victims were rushed to the hospital.
FWC would like to remind everyone on this Memorial not to boat under the influence.
Boating while impaired by drugs or alcohol is dangerous and illegal.
“Our officers look for boaters operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and when they find them, those impaired operators face arrest,” said FWC.
According to FWC boating accident statistics, 20 percent of the boating fatalities in 2015 were alcohol or drug related. Don’t be a statistic – designate a sober boat operator whenever you’re on the water today.
