New NY Law Requires Powerboat Operators to Take Safety Course

Operators of power boats in New York State will have to have take a boating safety course or face possible fines, but not until 2025. Brianna’s Law was signed by the governor earlier this month. Western Ramapo and Orange County assemblyman Karl Brabenec says sometimes people think operating a boat is similar to driving a car…

The law is named after 11 year-old Brianna Lieneck, who was killed in a boating accident on Long Island’s Great South Bay in 2005. Current law requires those born after May 1, 1996, to complete a boater safety course. Fines range between $100 and $250.
