Across the country this weekend, law enforcement is conducting “Operation Dry Water”. This program is also being used in Florida to conduct BUI checkpoints and collect safety compliance information.
BUI stands for Boating Under the Influence in Florida. Just like in a DUI, if your blood alcohol level is over .08 and you are operating a boat, you can be arrested for BUI. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission estimate that 20% of deadly boating accidents are the result of alcohol use while operating the boat.
Call our Boating Under the Influence (BUI) Attorneys at (904) 634-0900 if you have any questions.
