  • Operation Dry Water Presentation

    1. 2. Operation Dry Water is a coordinated, national weekend of Boating Under the Influence (BUI) detection and enforcement aimed at reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities and fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use on the water.
    2. 3. Operation Dry Water directly addresses the National Recreational Boating Safety Strategic Plan Strategy 6.2, …increase the number of BUI checkpoints to collect and report BUI and safety compliance data in the Performance Report Part II.
    3. 4. What’s in a Name?
    4. 7. Increase BUI enforcement Increase patrols on a particular body of water Increase patrols in several locations BUI checkpoints in one or more locations Heightened awareness Combination Local media and public awareness

    11. 24. Thoughts from the public … Hopefully, here in NC, they will close down all the schools they fired the teachers from due to budget cuts and they move that tax revenue to the Wildlife so they can run around harassing boaters every weekend. Gee, hope your family is never the recipient of a boating accident due to excessive drinking! This forum is about boater safety and education. I posted this for all as a reminder to be careful out there. Maybe you have other priorities...I wouldn't call it harassment.
    12. 25. Operation dry weather would make more sense here in the Northeast. Thoughts from the public … They also should have common sense checkpoints.
    13. 26. I am not an organization, just an individual who enjoys boating. I applaude your program and wish you great success. I use alcohol on occasion but limit it to situations where i won't be operating any type of equipment that will endanger anyone or anything. As far as I am concerned, any alcohol use connected with boating should be strickly banned and violaters should be severely punished. Once again, I wish you great success !!!!!

    14. 27. Reading an artical in shelby nc we noticed you have 21% of fatalities are due to results from use of alcohol (2007). later in the same artical you say the trend is headed downwardhowever alcohol remains the leading factor of fatal accidents. the math does not add up.21% from 100% leaves 79%.what is the cause of the 79% of accidents? people are not as ignorant as you would like them to be. Approaching a boater for no appparant reason and ask them to blow into your so called brethalizer is nothing but harassment and intrapment. law enforcement in this matter is nothing more than an example of a modern day Hitlers SS. this is america. stop harassing Our citizens who have a right to enjoy our waters without your lame statistic driven excuse to interrogate them. americans are fed up with law enforcement invading our consitutional rights. find a real job. we are tired of paying you to infringe on our rights. stop todays SS. Not so much of a fan
