Carozza Proposes Boat Safety Bill

232

Lower Eastern Shore Delegate Mary Beth Carozza is trying to make boat safety a priority in Maryland. She introduced an emergency boat safety bill in the wake of the death of the boy who fell out of a boat and was hit by the propeller in Ocean City last year. The bill prohibits dangerous bow riding on boats propelled by a motor but exempts boats powered by sail, oars or paddles. It also does not apply to boats used solely for warning, protection or public safety, which means law enforcement and firefighting boats are exempt.
