Checkpoint Shows 69 Percent of Lake Mohave Boaters Complying With
KINGMAN, Ariz. – A multi-agency Operating Under the Influence (OUI)
checkpoint on Lake Mohave Sept. 6 showed that 69 percent of the 235
boaters checked were complying with state watercraft operation laws, say
Arizona Game and Fish Department officers.
The checkpoint was conducted at Katherine Landing by the Arizona Game and
Fish Department, Bullhead City Police Department, National Park Service
and Nevada Division of Wildlife.
During the checkpoint, officers issued 72 citations and 10 warnings. There
were 77 operators who admitted consuming some alcohol. Four were issued
OUI citations. “As far as OUIs,” Game and Fish Department officer Chris
Crawforth says, “every intoxicated operator we stop is a life saved.
Watercraft use and alcohol just don’t mix.”
Several area businesses helped support the watercraft safety effort:
Subway, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Albertson’s Food and Drug and Lake Mohave
