  • TOP TEN COUNTIES

    A thorough review of annual boating accident statistics has revealed that 60% of the reportable boating accidents during the 2007 calendar year occurred in 10 Florida counties.

    The information on the following pages represents a breakdown of the accident data from each of these top 10 counties. The graphs show the types of vessels involved, the primary cause of each accident, and primary type of accidents for each county. There is also a map of each county with points designating the accident locations.

    The information found in this section will provide a basis for future boating safety awareness efforts implemented by the FWC Division of Law Enforcement, Boating & Waterways Section.
