Limit your speed to five miles per hour when your motorized vessel is:

  • 100 feet from a bather (but not a water skier)
  • 200 feet from a bathing beach, swimming float, diving platform, passenger landing being used or a landing where boats are tied up
  • Any time you see a sheriff's emergency blue lights flashing

Note: All vessels must stop at an accident and render assistance if emergency assistance has not yet arrived.

Remember to always wear a life jacket.
