Boating Citation Issued Over The Weekend

Boating Citation Issued Over The Weekend

The Amador Sheriff’s Marine Enforcement detail conducted a stop on a vessel over the weekend and issued a citation for an unfortunate, too common infraction! Deputies originally stopped the boat for a no wake violation. But they also determined a juvenile, 8, was operating the vessel in the presence of an adult; however, the juvenile was not wearing a life jacket. The adult was educated on the law and subsequently issued a citation. A reminder to all boaters the states, quote; “a person shall not operate a motorboat, sailboat, or vessel of any length unless every person on board who is under 13 years of age is wearing a coast guard approved flotation device.” If you have any boating questions contact the sheriff’s department.
