Operating a Boat in San Antonio

Unlike cars, boat operation in Texas doesn’t require a ton of experience. In fact, some boaters don’t even require a license to operate a boat! Those who do require a boating license can obtain one in a matter of hours without any experience. Even more distressing is the fact that Texas law allows renters to operate a boat with no license.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that one of the leading causes of boat accidents in San Antonio is recklessness. In experience and overconfidence means some boat operators can quickly and inadvertently cause an accident. Since boats are generally associated with recreation, alcohol is a significant factor for accidents. According to Texas Parks and Wildlife, alcohol is a factor in 50 percent of all boating accidents. Considering the information above, one thing becomes obvious when it comes to boat accident: most of them are preventable.
