Reading the paper today I came across an article stating that law enforcement officers in Maine will be strictly enforcing drunk boating laws, which it said includes canoes, row boats, and kayaks. The BAC limit is .08 for these activities. So, I kind of had to scratch my head a bit at this. I can understand this level as a lowest common denominator for operation of a motor vehicle or power boat, but for a boat powered by human propulsion? It just seems like some serious overreach on the part of the government. Further, given that no license or boat registration is needed for operating a human powered boat, there is no implied consent as far as submitting to a test. So who in their right mind would consent? I don't really have a dog in the fight as I'm not much of a partier, but stuff like this kind of galls me. Oh yeah, be careful out there.
