A STATEWIDE boating safety campaign was announced last week, raising awareness of alcohol’s effect when on the water.
The campaign will remind boaters to be aware of blood alcohol limits, lifejacket laws and safe boating practices.
Throughout November, Roads and Maritime Services boating officers will join with water and land-based police to carry out random breath testing in waterways throughout NSW.
They will also check lifejackets on board or those being worn by those on board, depending on the type of vessel, size, location and time of day. Go to lifejacketwearit.com.au for more information.
