New Videos Available to educate Wake Boat operators

MBIA’s position remains it is an education issue, not a regulation issue.  We are hearing more attempts to create regulations to stop wake boat operations around Michigan.  We have met with the Michigan State Boating Law Administrator and he has indicated that there are specific steps that need to be followed to create any new regulation in the state of Michigan and without those steps, which include proof of a legitimate safety issue, regulations are not recognized by Michigan’s law enforcement.  In fact, these non-legitimate regulations can set those who try to enforce them up for legal liability.  As we further research this effort, MBIA continues to promote the Watch Your Wake, Share the Lake message and you should too.  A new video is available from WSIA which can be shared with your customers.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCsf6i4iK9g
