As an experienced Western New York DWI Attorney I am often asked questions regarding boats and jet skis. We live on Lake Erie on a number of waterways in the Western New York area. Many people use boats and jet skis. In New York it is illegal to consume alcohol and/or drugs while operating a jet ski or a boat. There is a charge of boating while intoxicated and that includes jet skis. I’ve represented numerous people who are out on the Niagara River or on Lake Erie who get arrested and stopped by the Sheriff’s patrol on the lake for boating or driving a jet ski while intoxicated. This applies all over Lake Erie down to Sunset Bay, Mickey Rat’s, and on the Niagara River as well in Niagara County going towards Lake Ontario.
Have you recently gotten a DWI on a boat or jet ski? If so, contact the experienced Western New York DWI Attorney Arthur Pressman.
