THE Maritime and Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam reminded boat operators and passengers, especially in the Brunei River to always wear life jackets while travelling on boats.

Safety while in the waters of Brunei Darussalam is the responsibility of all, it added.

The proper wearing of life jackets helps reduce accident risks while using the water taxi.

Taxi boat drivers were urged to always wear life jackets, comply with regulations and slow down the boat when travelling in areas of construction as well as during bad weather.

The authority will take action on boat drivers and passengers who fail to comply with regulations and safety requirements.
