Nearly Half of all Boating Deaths Attributed to Alcohol, OPP Advocating Safety
The OPP is reminding the public to leave the alcohol on the shore if you plan on operating a boat.
Constable Philippe Regamey says alcohol has effects on your body which can be intensified while on boat.
Regamey says alcohol affects your judgement, reduces motor-skills, and slows reactions, reflexes and response times.
Regamey says nearly half of boating fatalities in Canada are alcohol-related.
