Chart 14 - PWC - Operators Involved in Accidents by Age

"No operator" refers to accidents involving vessels where there was no operator present at the time of the accident. Most of these vessels were in vessel slips, tied to docks, or moored, and were struck by other vessels. Because PWC do not tend to be housed in slips, due to the small size, the number of vessels in this category is much smaller than the "No Operator" category for overall boating accidents. Some accident reports submitted to the Department do not include operator age information, as indicated by the "Age Unknown" category.

Operators in the 11-20 age group and the 21-30 age group were involved in more accidents than any other age groups, accounting for 62% of PWC operators involved in accidents.
