visions. By Presidential Proclamation 3030, dated August 15, 1953, the President proclaimed as authorized by Congress that the revised International Rules would be in force and effect on and after January 1, 1954. Since March 1, 1955, no statutory change to the International Rules has been made by Congress.

For ready reference the statutes containing the International Rules and the Inland Rules are reprinted in this pamphlet in comparative form. Some rearrangement of the sequence of the laws was necessary to align corresponding provisions. Each statute specifies the waters on which it is applicable. The lines of demarcation between the high seas and inland waters are regulations prescribed by the Commandant of the Coast Guard pursuant to section 2 of the Act of February 19, 1895, as amended (33 U. S. C. 151), and are copied from Part 82 of Title 33 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

Because of the revision of the International Rules which became effective January 1, 1954, and also because of various amendments to the Inland Rules, many publications and text books on the Rules of the Road may be obsolete. The Coast Guard publishes only three pamphlets on the Rules of the Road, this publication covering the International Rules to prevent collisions and Pilot Rules for the coastal inland waters, and separate publications for the Great Lakes, and the western rivers. Any other Coast Guard publication on this subject, such as "Comparative Rules of the Road and How to Obey Them,” and this pamphlet with edition dates prior to January 2, 1957, are obsolete and should be discarded. Publications which do not contain current rules for preventing collisions should be checked and corrected immediately or discarded.

The rules and regulations regarding navigation are published in Chapter I of Title 33 (Navigation and Navigable Waters) in the Code of Federal Regulations. Each chapter of rules and regulations assigned to the Coast Guard is further divided into subchapters, parts, subparts, sections, paragraphs, subparagraphs, and subdivisions. The parts in each chapter are assigned arabic numbers and may be further divided into subparts, which are divided into sections assigned arabic numbers. The sections have been further subdivided into paragraphs, paragraphs into subparagraphs, and subparagraphs into subdivisions. The terminology for numbering may be described as follows: Terminology

The navigation requirements for the Great Lakes are set forth in a pamphlet entitled “Pilot Rules for the Great Lakes and Their Connecting and Tributary Waters and the St. Marys River,” CG-172. The navigation requirements for the western rivers and the Red River of the North are set forth in a pamphlet entitled “Pilot Rules for the Western Rivers and the Red River of the North,” CG-184. These pamphlets may be obtained upon request from Coast Guard marine inspection offices in the major ports, or the Commandant (CHS), United States Coast Guard Headquarters, Washington 25, D. C.

The Coast Guard is responsible for the enforcement of these rules and regulations. All persons navigating or piloting public or private vessels should familiarize themselves with the requirements of these rules and regulations and conform strictly therewith in the navigation of their vessels. To this end, Coast Guard personnel concerned with the administration and enforcement of these rules and regulations will extend every possible assistance.
