|Chart 6 | Operators Involved in All Accidents by Age|
|Operators in the 21-30 age group were involved in more accidents than any other age group followed closely by operators in the 41-50 and 31-40 age groups.
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. Some accident reports submitted to the Department do not include operator age information, as indicated by the Age Unknown category.
