Police target boating activities

Police have launched an operation targeting unsafe and illegal boating activities in Ettalong.

Operation Fortitude, combining officers from Brisbane Water Local Area Command with the assistance of the Marine Local Area Command, was launched January 14 and will continue throughout the summer period.

The operation is aimed at conducting high-visibility patrols, random breath tests and vessel compliance inspections across the Ettalong and Brisbane Water area.

As a part of the operation, on January 15, police conducted more than 100 random breath tests and completed a number of marine vessel compliance inspections.

Brisbane Waters Local Area Commander, Superintendent Danny Sullivan, said that police would be on the water to ensure that everyone had a fun and safe time this summer.

"Police will continue to ensure that everyone is safe this boating season by targeting dangerous and anti-social behaviour on the waterways," Supt Sullivan said.

"Police will be highly visible on the waterways conducting random breath test and safety checks on jet skis and boats.

"Skippers need to remember that they are responsible for the safety of everyone on their boat, and the same drink-driving laws apply on the water as on the land.

"The legal limit is 0.05 but the safest option is not to drink if you're the skipper of a vessel.

"Most importantly, remember that if you're heading out on the water, wear a life jacket; it's not a fashion statement, it will save your life," Supt Sullivan said.
