Beware Drunk Boaters: Highway Patrol Will be Watching

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Missouri State Highway Patrol is cracking down on drunken drivers, but this time it’s those driving boats.

The agency’s Water Patrol Division announced Monday it will participate in Operation Dry Water, a national campaign against boating while impaired. Troopers will be out in force the weekend of June 22-24 to detect and apprehend intoxicated boat operators.

Missouri’s legal limit blood-alcohol limit for boaters is 0.08, the same as for those driving motor vehicles.
