New Jersey has a reputation as a driving state, featuring one of the densest interstate structures in the country and a massive web of turnpikes, bridges, tunnels, parkways, and traffic bottlenecks. New Jersey’s car culture is so strong that many residents refer to where they live not by town or street name but rather by exit number. Even Simon & Garfunkel sang, “Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike, they’ve all come to look for America.” While being in your car is an integral part of life in Jersey City, NJ and all parts of New Jersey, this state also boasts an increasingly popular boating culture.

With so many people operating vessels, the potential for accidents causing property damage, injury, and death rises. This risk exponentially increases when the operator of the vessel is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
