The accident that didn’t have to happen on Table Rock Lake is going to happen again. Maybe not in Missouri, but somewhere, sometime, and to somebody else.

That’s because no one — regulators, lawmakers, the industry — is being ordered to take the appropriate safety precautions.

Earlier this week the National Transportation Safety Board released its “Safety Recommendation Report” into the duck boat accident on Table Rock Lake in the summer of 2018. It was an accident that killed 17 people.
