what ever you want to call it while boating under the influence. there may b a new law coming down the pipe (reinstatement of an early 90's law actuallly) which will allow the DMV to suspend your license if caught boating under the influence. my question is if you dont need a license to operate a boat how can they get away with suspending your shizz like as if you where operating a car on the road.

I think what he is talking about, is the good ole boys in Sacramento are trying to resurrect the old law and have those suspensions reinstated.

Laser 23, there already is a handful of reasons you can lose your license not related to driving, case and point... Don't pay your child support, medical, seizures,...insurance....court order.... the list goes on....refuse blood test....etc....:|err

The "old" suspension for DUI on a vessel was actually an administrative policy, set by the CA DMV. It was challenged in court and the DMV policy lost.

It will now be set by CA state law, rather than just a policy. This is for California licenses only, at this point. There will be no effect on other states. However, a California driver may lose their license for a conviction in another state, due to the interstate violator reporting compacts.
