Choose your ride for Memorial Day

Posted: Updated:
CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Law agencies are united to bring the summer safety message to land and water: "Choose Your Ride" Impaired Driving Message Coupled with Click It or Ticket Campaign.  This is just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources along with the Georgia State Patrol and the Governor's Office of Highway Safety are reminding drivers and boaters to remain safe.

DNR officials say they're going to be looking for excessive speeders and inattentive boaters.

They say it's best to boat safe and boat sober.

"We know you're out for recreational activities on the boat. You have family and friends and sometimes you bring along alcohol for those outings. But please choose a designated operator," said Lt. Colonel Jeff Weaver.

DNR arrested 16 people on Lake Blackshear last year for Boating under the Influence.
