warden writing life jacket tickets. yeah!

A bunch of people with under 16 ft boats at keystroke lake in New Alexandria pa got tickets for not wearing life jackets. I was happy to see this...adults and kids. Shame on all of them esp the ones with kids. What is the fine? I tried the book and could not find.

Re: warden writing life jacket tickets. yeah!

Last year they gave everyone warnings and clearly stated that this year it would be fines without question. At least the ones around here said that. Last year they stood right at the launches at the stocked lakes and told everyone as they put boats in. Where I found it hard is floating the river trapping and having to wear one.

I believe for adults it is October thru April they must be.worn, not during the summer months. I believe the change was to address the additional risks of cold water.

Re: warden writing life jacket tickets. yeah!

Just something to think about, it is possible to be wearing the inflatable kind that go around your waste like a fanny pack. I know many people dont use these, but i do and people (wardens) have assumed i was illegal even though i wasnt...

Re: warden writing life jacket tickets. yeah!

Hmm I'm not sure the waist one would be ok...it states life jacket not waist inflatable... Who did you seek out to give you a ruling? I'm not saying it isn't legal but why fight that battle? I saw a boat that was asked to come in off the water to get fined.....why fight that and have to come in off the water etc..the inflatable ones are really nice
