Recreational Boating Traffic Expected to Peak This Weekend: Getting Safely Home After the Fireworks
ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 27, 2011 – It’s not a Thanksgiving holiday traffic jam. However, for America’s boaters, it may as well be. Boat Owners Association of The United States says the July 4th holiday is expected to bring record numbers of boaters to the water, jamming lakes, rivers and bays with thousands of revelers celebrating America’s birthday at evening fireworks displays. With nightfall, it also means a heightened awareness with recreational boating safety.
