Termination of unsafe operation


A police officer or peace officer, acting pursuant to his or her special duties, who has reasonable cause to believe that a vessel, including a rowboat, canoe or kayak, is being operated, in his or her presence, upon the navigable waters of the state, or any tidewaters bordering on or lying within the boundaries of the county of Nassau or Suffolk, in violation of any section of this article, and that it would be so imminently hazardous to continue to operate such vessel as to be likely to cause an accident or physical injury, may direct the master or operator of such vessel to cease operating upon such waters, and to proceed immediately to dock the vessel at the nearest available safe anchorage, dock or mooring until the violation charged by such officer is finally adjudicated or until such hazardous condition is remediated or otherwise corrected.
