Thursday, 11 July 2013 00:00

 While most boaters and personal watercraft riders operate their vessels in a responsible manner, speeding is a major problem.  According to Oyster Bay Town Councilman Chris J. Coschignano, speeding will not be tolerated in Town waters.

“With Long Island Sound on the town’s north shore and Great South Bay on the south shore, it is only natural that Oyster Bay attracts a large number of boaters and personal watercraft riders,” Coschignano said. “Boaters and operators of personal watercraft commonly known as ‘jet skis’ after a popular brand should be aware that speeding in town waters will not be tolerated.” In 2011, bay constables issued 130 summonses for speeding, excessive wake and imprudent operation of a vessel.
