ALBANY – The New York State Senate on Monday unanimously passed Bryan Johnson’s Law, sponsored by Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester), which would allow judges consider prior Boating While Intoxicated (BWI) offenses when sentencing a person for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

The bill was named for Bryan Johnson, a 26-year-old from Ossining, who passed away in June of 2012. Johnson drowned in the waters off City Island in a boating prank gone wrong.Carlucci-Bryan-Johnsons-Law-Boating-Safety-696x345

Under the current law, Sen. Carlucci said judges do not have to consider BWI’s when sentencing a person found guilty of a DWI offense.

“A loophole in our state’s law allows someone who has received one or more BWI’s to be sentenced as a first-time offender for a DWI, and this shouldn’t be the case,” said Sen. Carlucci.

Senator Carlucci’s bill would require a judge to consider prior BWI convictions from the past 25 years during a DWI sentencing.

“It doesn’t matter what vehicle you are driving, if it’s a boat or if it’s a car. The judge is looking at that pattern. We need to add some common sense to our legislation to make sure we are sending a message that when you get on a boat you do not leave your common sense ashore,” said Sen. Carlucci.

For the second straight year fees for recreational boaters are being waived for all recreational boaters on the Erie Canal Season.  That’s the good news, of course that notice came out right after the notification from the New York State Canal Corporation related to the once again shortened schedule for the 2018 navigation season.  The revised schedule is posted here. 

It is very important that the recreational boaters of the region get out on the water this year,  the only way to the Canal Corporation and it’s parent the NY Power Authority will return to a full navigation season is by the boaters and the communities along the canal getting out on the water, attend the waterfront events, use the locks.  A record is kept of every lock through done on the entire system.  If you’re concerned because the locks in your community are only open to 5, get out and use them.  The amount of locking’s in any specific lock is the only way the Canal Corp. can determine the boat traffic in a particular area.
