Re: A nice change for boaters!
A driving force for change is when people realize the negative financial impact it has on them, then it seems to get attention. Generally when an action only affects a small % of folks then those not affected are more or less complacent. MV vs SV vs jet skis vs kayakers etc. I for one, am glad to see any flexibility in the folks who work hard in LE and government to learn and understand the importance of the what and whys of their work.
That I personally have had both positive and negative interactions, does not reflect the majority of the LEOs attitudes or policies. What is nice, is that somebody, even if they are not a boater recognized the "need" for extra protection and did what they could do. Kudos to that Governor and crew!
