  1. A hazard is an area designated by the Director which incurs a penalty throw.
  2. The line defining the edges of the hazard area is part of the hazard area. If a line is shared between out-of-bounds and a hazard area, the line is considered part of the out-of-bounds area.
  3. A disc is in a hazard if its position is clearly and completely surrounded by the hazard or by a combination of the hazard and an out-of-bounds area.
  4. A player whose disc is in a hazard receives one penalty throw. The lie is not relocated.
  5. If the thrower moves the disc before a determination whether it is in a hazard has been made, the disc is considered to be in the hazard.
