Supervisor Romaine, SCPD, Coast Guard, MADD to Announce Crackdown on Intoxicated and Unsafe Boaters After Recent Incident in Great South Bay

Farmingville, NY - June 4, 2014 - Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine and officials from the Suffolk County Police Marine Bureau and the United States Coast Guard will hold a press conference at the Sandspit Marina in Patchogue at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, June 4 to announce plans to increase enforcement against unsafe and intoxicated boaters in Brookhaven Town waterways. Also attending the press conference will be members of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), and the mother of an 11-year-old girl killed in a boating accident.
A recent incident in the Great South Bay off Brookhaven Town underscores the importance of boating safety and staying alcohol-free while operating a boat. In late May, two men were badly injured when their boat slammed into a jetty in Blue Point. It is reported that 16% of boating accidents occur as a result of Boating While Intoxicated (BWI) and over 20% of all boating fatalities are a result of alcohol-impaired boaters.
DATE:       Wednesday, June 4
TIME:        11:00 AM
PLACE:     Brookhaven Town Sandspit Marina, 116 Brightwood Street,  Patchogue 11772
