Iowa Senate Toughens Drunken Boating Law

February 3, 2011, 6:51 AM

DES MOINES, IA - The Iowa Senate has approved a measure putting the same blood-alcohol restrictions on boat operators as apply to motor vehicle drivers.
 
Under the measure, boaters could be cited if they're caught with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 of a percent. That's down from the current 0.10 of a percent.  The Senate approved the measure Wednesday on a 40-9 vote, sending it to the House.

Backers pointed to statistics from 2010 showing five fatalities in boating incidents, with three involving alcohol. Under the measure, a first offense could bring up to 48 hours in jail, a fine of $1,000 and a ban on operating boat for a year. An alcohol-related incident causing serious injury could bring up to a year in jail, and a fine of up to $7,500.
