  • The vessel operator must operate it in a careful manner and not exceed a speed that is reasonable and safe under prevailing conditions.
  • The vessel operator must take into consideration the size of the lake or body of water, the amount of other traffic on the water and the view that is available.
  • The operator must not unduly endanger life, limb or property rights or other rights of people entitled to use the water way.

Client Reviews
To anyone looking for legal service, you won't find a better law team than Mr Farber and Kelly. They are very caring of your case and treat you like family. I have used them a few times and highly recommend them. Michael
Herb truly had my best interests in mind and was very knowledgeable about the law surrounding my case. He was fair and very upfront about potential outcomes of the case. I believe that he worked tirelessly to get the best settlement. Jan
Herb and team are excellent! As someone unfamiliar with the legal system, they did a great job walking us through every step so we wouldn't get overwhelmed. Our case was emotional and they never hesitated to answer a question, empathize with the challenges of the process, and at times just listen. Over the years we became close and I hope to stay connect to them even though the case is over. They helped us start a new chapter. He always made the extra effort by driving to our home when we couldn't meet him. Who makes house calls these days? Herb does! Not only did I feel like I was in good hands but I genuinely enjoyed working with them. How many people can say that about their attorney? Ashley A.
