Book boat­ies

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA - BRUCE STRANG Floreat

While it’s a case of bet­ter late than never, I ap­plaud the State Gov­ern­ment for con­sid­er­ing leg­is­la­tion in re­la­tion to ran­dom breath-test­ing for al­co­hol and drugs for boat­ies in order to bring them in line with DUI laws ap­pli­ca­ble to mo­torists, mo­tor­bike rid­ers and cy­clists alike (TST, Jan 6).

Hope­fully this will cover all wa­ter craft, es­pe­cially the reck­less jet­skiers I’ve wit­nessed on many oc­ca­sions fright­en­ing and en­dan­ger­ing in­no­cent wa­ter en­thu­si­asts.

The quicker this leg­is­la­tion is in­tro­duced the bet­ter for all con­cerned.
