Spring Break and Boating Safety in Florida
Florida has more boaters than any other state in the country
Over 4,000 serious boating accidents are reported each year, and according to the U.S. Coast Guard, there were over 2600 injuries and 560 fatalities resulting from these boating accidents nationwide in 2013. In 2013, over 75% of the fatalities with known cause were from drowning, and 84% of these victims failed to wear life jackets.
According to the U.S. Coast Guard, boating driver distraction, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed, and machinery failure were the primary contributing factors in accidents. Alcohol use played a leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents. (U.S. Coast Guard.)
