Protect our children! We need fencing around residential ponds and lakes to save lives!

We would like to urge Governor Rick Scott to mandate legislation to require ponds and lakes to be fenced to prevent tragic drowning deaths of innocent young children. We are seeing this far too often and these types of deaths could be prevented with the use of fencing!
If homeowners with pools are required to have fencing around their pool then why not have them around ponds and other bodies of water especially those located near schools and residential communities.
The tragic death of little Adam Roach of Lakeland might have been prevented if lakes within the Carlton Arms community had been fenced to prevent small children from wandering near the water. I do realize that it is ultimately a parents responsibility to watch over their child but accidents do happen and a little extra precaution such as a fence around the property could help give a little bit more piece of mind to parents.
