Alcohol is a factor in about 40% of the estimated 150 recreational boating fatalities that occur in Canada each year. Alcohol diminishes judgment, reduces motor skills and balance, slows reaction times, reduces depth perception, and accelerates hypothermia. Trying to operate a boat while impaired endangers the operator, passengers and other boaters on the water. Despite the risks, 37% of boaters admit to consuming alcohol every time they boat, and 66% say they drink alcohol sometimes when boating. Generally, boaters who are impaired are more likely to go too fast for the waterway, operate vessels in a dangerous or careless manner, forget to turn on running lights or other required night-time equipment, or openly consume alcohol while underway. Anyone who sees a boater they think is impaired can call 911 or their local police marine unit. Try to have the boat licence number, name and description of the boat, the direction of travel and any location information or specific landmarks. IMPAIRED BOATING IS IMPAIRED DRIVING
