Boating Accidents

During the warm weather months, many Iowans spend time out on the water to enjoy the outdoors while staying cool. With the increased use of boats during the summer season, there is a higher likelihood of boating accidents which can result in serious injury. Every year thousands of people are injured and hundreds are killed in boating accidents across the country, many are preventable when proper safety measures are followed.

  • Operators and their passengers can protect themselves from boating injuries and fatalities by wearing a life jacket to prevent drownings.
  • Texting while boating or other distracted behaviors are just as dangerous behind the wheel of a boat as it is for drivers in a car, so it is important for operators to pay attention.
  • While enjoying alcoholic beverages might be part of the boating experience for passengers, impaired operation can lead to tragic accidents.
  • Proper training can mean the difference between avoiding accidents and being involved in a collision.

Boating Accidents Can Result in Serious Injury
