BOATING UNDER THE INFLUENCE/ RECKLESS BOATING
The continued “crack down” on boating and drinking has quickly become a heightened point of emphasis for law enforcement all across the Greater Puget Sound and Western Washington. So, although boating is often seen by many as a leisurely activity, and one which Washingtonians have only a few short months every year to enjoy, boaters must be abundantly cognizant that law enforcement is increasingly treating Boating Under the Influence (“BUI”) as if it were a “zero tolerance” crime. No longer is law enforcement just concerned about citizens drinking and driving, they are now stopping and arresting people for operating any type of vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
