Sail-World.com : Victorian BIA endorses new regs and fines for Australian boaters
Victorian BIA endorses new regs and fines for Australian boaters

'Safety at Sea'    .

The Boating Industry Association of Victoria (BIAV) today announced support for the Marine Safety Regulations 2012 which are set to come into effect on July 1st 2012.

   BIA VIC  
BIAV President Andrew Warner said 'Minister for Ports Dr Denis Napthine has kept his word on reducing the level of regulatory burden that recreational boaters would face under new regulations.

'Dr Napthine has listened to boaters and he’s got the balance right. 'The Marine Safety Regulations 2012 and increased ‘on the spot’ fines will put the spotlight clearly on boating safety. Boaters simply cannot afford to be complacent about marine safety from here on.

'The regulations contain a number of important changes that recreational boaters will urgently need to be familiar with before they hit the water this season. Most importantly will be ensuring the proper maintenance of vessels and that all boaters are aware of the extreme penalty infringements that will be handed out after July 1st for safety and non-safety based offences', Andrew Warner said.

Penalty Infringements include:
* ‘on the spot’ tickets for failure to wear a life jacket will double to $281.68
* ‘on the spot’ tickets for forgetting to renew boat registration will rise to $704.20
* $140.84 ‘on the spot’ parking tickets for boaters on the water
* ‘on the spot’ tickets for a flat torch battery will rise to $176.05
* $281.68 ‘on the spot’ tickets for a leaking hull

Recreational boaters can view the new regulations and penalty infringements on the BIAV website www.biavic.com.au
