Boating Under the Influence is illegal. The Prevention Council of Saratoga County is urging boaters to enjoy this boating season and help keep everyone safe by not drinking alcohol while on the water, or operating a boat after you have consumed alcohol. Use of both legal and illegal drugs also impairs judgment and reaction time and makes it dangerous to operate any vessel. The first offense will cost you between $500 and $1,000, up to one year in jail, and a minimum of a six month revocation of your license.
