Did you know that according to the Insurance Information Institute the number of boating accidents that involve alcohol is roughly 50 percent? That's a startling figure that really puts the matter into focus. The Coast Guard also says that when a boating accident happens that involve alcohol, the chance for the incident to be fatal is increased 34 percent.
Look, people should never operate a boat when they have had alcohol in their system. It's just a stupid decision that could result in the individual getting into serious trouble -- and in the worst cases, the individual gets into trouble after causing a tragic accident. Just avoid this if you can.
