Since California is on the coastline, people are constantly using the state’s waterways for boating and fishing. Unfortunately, more people on the water typically means more boating accidents. According to the California Division of Boating and Waterways, around 500 Californians are injured and 50 are killed in boating accidents in California each year.

A day out on the water is a fun way to relax and relieve stress. But countless distractions mean some vehicle operators may not be paying attention to other vehicles, channel markers, and other safety concerns .

Drugs, alcohol, and other substances can impair operator’s judgement and reaction times, creating dangerous circumstances where accidents are likely to occur.
