    PERSONAL opinions of an OPP SAVE officer

    Definitely not illegal.
  2. All, As in the previous FS I am willing to lend my expertise like any others on this forum. I will attempt to answer any and all relevant question you have regarding sleds, ATVs and general enforcement. Be aware..this is not official OPP communication nor is it legal advice. Its simply my opinion based on experience as a police officer. For those unaware I've spent the past 10yrs working in the Snowmobile ATV Vessel Enforcement team (SAVE) and have built up a lot of experience, met many of the original members and I think we all had benefitted from the questions shared on here. Hopefully the mods will pin this thread. All I ask is that this thread not turn into a police bashing thread... If that happens I will not be able to continue. Feel free to bash away, just not in this thread please. Sean

    PERSONAL opinions of an OPP SAVE officer

    As the captain or master of the vessel you are legally responsible for what goes on aboard. So yes, it is possible that the captain was charged. But not $300. It would be $215 total for operate vessel underway with open alcohol. Most guys I know will ticket an individual and not the captain. Or if there are multiple people drinking and the interaction is good I (me) will use our allowed discretion and let one person come forward to take the actual ticket and encourage the others to chip in. Usually this would be a $125 total fine for open alcohol in public. Sean
