Police warn boaters that children up to age of 10 must wear lifejackets


Police conducting checks at the Vranov reservoir at the weekend found that in more than 20 cases children aboard boats did not have lifejackets even though the law requires all children up to the age of 10 to wear them. The police did not hand out fines to those captaining the vessels but let them go with a warning. The police found no discrepancies in paperwork and none of the boat captains was found to have been drinking.
