The Stonington Police Department would like to remind everyone as we head into summer this upcoming holiday weekend to please be safe out on the water. Alcohol is the leading contributing factor in recreational boating deaths and a major factor in accidents on the water. Boating under the influence applies to drugs, as well as alcohol. Even some prescription medications can make operating a recreational vessel unsafe. Check with your doctor about the effects of any medications you may be taking. Alcohol use is dangerous for passengers too. Intoxicated passengers can easily slip, fall overboard or suffer other life-threatening accidents. It is important that all operators and passengers are wearing a USCG approved life jacket. Also, operators should always use an engine cut-off device. THE STONINGTON POLICE WILL BE OUT ON THE WATER THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE SUMMER ENFORCING THESE SAFETY REGULATIONS. PLEASE REMEMBER TO BE SAFE AND ENJOY THE BOATING SEASON.
