Recreational boating around the Lockyer and Somerset regions will be under the spotlight this weekend, with officers from the Water Police conducting a number of operations in the area.
A police spokesperson says the officers, complete with a rigid inflatable, would be targeting boaties over the weekend, in the run-up to New Year's Eve festivities.
"Vessel operators should remember that the .05 blood alcohol limit applies on the water as well as on land, and Water Police officers will be conducting random breath tests to enforce this law," the spokesperson says.
As well as RBT operations, officers will be checking vessels are carrying appropriate safety equipment, licence and registration checks, speed, and ensuring the safe operation of vessels.
"Brisbane-based Water Police will be out in force this weekend, to ensure everyone has a fun and safe weekend on the water, whether it is dams or rivers."
