Excerpt
Excerpt: Recreational boating accidents currently result in the greatest number of transportation fatalities annually after highway accidents. Although the number of fatal recreational boating accidents and fatalities decreased each year from 1985 to 1990, the U.S. Coast Guard indicates that in 1991, the number of fatalities from recreational boating accidents increased to 924 from the 865 fatalities reported in 1990. According to the Coast Guard, the fatality rate-the number of fatalities per 100,000 estimated boats-also increased slightly during the same period. . Information from the American Red Cross indicates that about 355,000 persons are injured from recreational boating accidents annually and that more than 40 percent of these injuries require medical treatment beyond first aid. The US. Coast Guard estimates that in 1991 there were about 20 million recreational boats on the Nation?s waterways, with the number increasing steadily each year. Not only has the number of recreational boats increased, but the speed at which many of these recreational boats operate has also increased. Because of the number of fatalities and injuries and because recreational boating activities can be expected to continue to increase, the Safety Board believes that efforts to improve safety tie needed in recreational boating. The Safety Board, therefore, initiated a safety study of recreational boating accidents to determine the circumstances of these accidents and the countermeasures needed to prevent or reduce their number and severity.?
