    Jet Skis Banned Along Australia’s Adelaide Coastline

    Jet skis and motor boats are banned during the summer along a three kilometer stretch of the metropolitan coast of Australia’s Adelaide Coast. Motorized boats, including jet skis, are not allowed within 200 meters of shore between Torrens Outlet at West Beach and Grange Road. Labor member, Colton Paul Caica, claims to have pressed the government to introduce the motorboat ban for a decade and he finally saw it come to fruition in 2013.

    The government signed this exclusion which lasts from December 1 through March 31. 2015 marks the second year in a row that the ban has been enacted.

    According to a report in OZPWC, penalties for disregarding the prohibition of personal watercraft range from a minimum $105 fine to a maximum fine of $750 AUD’s. However, no fines were issued during the first year and only 13 riders cautioned. Transport Minister Stephen Mulligan says the law will be closely enforced the summer of 2014-2015. He expects the Marine Safety to enforce the law.
