Connecticut Signs New Tow Age Restrictions Into Law

Connecticut Governor Mallow has signed into law tow age restrictions which would require boat operators to be at least 16 years old when towing a person, and also requires them to have passed safe towing education and a safe boating course.

The bill grandfathers in those people who are under the age of 16 and have already obtained a safe boating certificate. The boater operator age will remain at 12 years and older with education.

This law will go into effect October 1, 2015.
