There is nothing more exhilarating than being on the open water and enjoying a day of boating, sailing, or jet skiing. However, when you are out there on the water, you don’t realize how dangerous, or even deadly, boating can really be. But the truth is that boats are just as dangerous as a car or any other motor vehicle on the roadway. What makes matters worse is that many people do not take their responsibility on the water very seriously and they often engage in dangerous behavior. When an operator on the water is negligent and becomes careless or inattentive, accidents happen. Most boating accidents occur due to negligence, inexperience, speeding, or alcohol.
