New Hampshire tries to enforce speed limits on waterways

New Hampshire State Rep. Christopher Algren pre-filed a bill in the state legislature that may seek to establish a boating speed limit on New Hampshire's inland waters, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reports.

 

This year, the Legislature narrowly rejected a bill that would have set a 45-mph daytime speed limit and a 25-mph speed limit at night.

 

The NMMA opposed previous efforts to establish a speed limit as an unenforceable and ineffective reaction to concerns about on-water safety and wake-induced erosion.

 

Also in New Hampshire, a bill has been pre-filed that would require children under 12 to wear life jackets.
