3 Tips for Safe Boating on Busy Weekends at the Lake of the Ozarks
Boat at safe speeds.
Speed limits and NO wake zones are there for a reason. It takes everyone cooperating and boating safely to prevent people from getting injured on the Lake of the Ozarks. It only takes a few seconds for something to go wrong and a horrific boat accident to occur so lower your chances of causing an accident and travel only at safe speeds.
Have an accurate amount of life jackets on board at all times.
Not only is this a safety measure all boaters SHOULD take, but it’s the law. Every boat must have enough life jackets on board for everyone. They also must be located where you can easily get to them if needed. Failure to do so may result in a hefty fine.
Never under any circumstances boat while intoxicated.
One of the most common causes of boating accidents in the area is boating while intoxicated. Boating accidents at the Lake of the Ozarks caused by boaters who are under the influence happen way too often. If you operate a boat while under the influence, you aren’t only putting your life at risk but you are endangering the lives of those around you as well.
