Enforcement/Violations

Several different law enforcement agencies enforce the Federal and State navigation laws. The
US Coast Guard patrols the joint
jurisdictional waters while enforcing federal laws. The State Park
Police, State Police, Department
of Environmental Conservation, as
well as county and local agencies
work to ensure compliance with state laws upon the water. Violations of State and Federal statutes carry fines and/or imprisonment.
Law enforcement may terminate the operation of any vessel,
including rowboats and canoes, found to have an immediately
hazardous violation of the law which may result in an accident or
physical injury.
Reckless operation of a boat can be a violation or misdemeanor.
Operators are required to operate a boat in a careful and prudent
manner in such a way as not to interfere with the free and proper use
of the navigable waters or endanger any boat or person. Reckless
operation may be the result of operator ignorance, inattention, indifference or carelessness. Some examples of reckless operation include:
* Operating at high speed in a congested area or in restricted
visibility
* Following another boat too closely
