AN ACT PROVIDING THAT A VIOLATION OF THE NO-WAKE SPEED ZONE UPON THE WATERS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY OF THE VILLAGE OF BALD HEAD ISLAND IS AN INFRACTION AND THAT A VIOLATION IS ENFORCEABLE AS IF IT WERE A PROVISION OF THE GENERAL LAWS REGULATING BOATING SAFETY.
Current law establishes a no-wake speed zone for motorboats within the community of Sunset Harbor and the Village of Bald Head Island, making a violation of the law a misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $250. Currently the law is enforceable by the Wildlife Resources Commission and the Brunswick County Sheriff. This act amends SL 1987-688, authorizing enforcement of the no-wake speed zone by the Department of Public Safety of the Village of Bald Head Island within the corporate limits of the Village and within one mile of the Village's corporate limits, in accordance with the provisions of GS 160A-285 and GS 160A-286 concerning the powers, duties, and extraterritorial jurisdiction of policemen.
