Personal Water Craft, also called Jet Skis and Wave Runners are the fastest growing watercraft on the waterways. Along with their popularity has come increasing numbers of injuries and deaths.

John Birkinbine, Personal Water Craft Industry spokesman, says no one under 16 should be allowed to drive a PWC because they lack the judgement necessary to operate one safely.
