Outside the flags? Then wear a life jacket. Letters, June 28, 2022

If we drive a car without a wearing a seat belt, we get fined. If we ride a motorbike without a helmet, we get fined. If we ride a pushbike without a helmet, we get fined. If we go boating without life jackets, we get fined. All sensible laws designed to keep us safe. Why then can't it be made compulsory to wear a life jacket or buoyancy vest when not swimming between the flags on a patrolled beach?
