Petty? Frivolous? Those two attitudes are what is wrong with boating today. Too many people are dying on our waterways because the attitude is that a boat and operation of a boat should not be governed by laws. Even though a boat is to most a recreational vessel, it is still a vehicle and a dangerous machine.
This particular county official who upholds the laws and regulations of the county should thnk about the dangers involved in boating. The news media itself should take boating more seriously.
