Lake of the Ozarks attracts thousands of vacationers and boating enthusiasts from across the country every year. On major holiday weekends, the population in the area can grow to nearly a million people. Safety is a major priority, and Missouri water patrol is on high alert for intoxicated boaters.
Boating while intoxicated (BWI) is a serious offense punishable by substantial fines and jail time. Even though a BWI conviction does not go on your Missouri driving record, avoiding a conviction should be a priority. BWI convictions are part of your criminal record and can show up on background checks by prospective employers and others. In addition, people convicted of BWI are required to take a boater safety class and reapply for their boating licenses.
