Know Before You Boat

“Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) staff and volunteers across the country are teaming up with law enforcement to promote safe boating and educate the community about the dangers of operating a boat or watercraft while impaired by alcohol or other drugs.

“The past two years have been treacherous not just on our roads, but on our waterways as well,” said MADD National President Alex Otte. “We want everyone to understand that a boat is a vehicle, and that BUI is DUI. Impairment by alcohol or any other drugs on the water is extremely dangerous and 100% preventable. The safest choice for boaters is to wait until they are on land and at a location they will not need to drive away from – either by boat or car.”
