The Georgia DNR will crack
down on boating under the influence ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.
Operation Dry Water is part a national effort to discourage
boating under the influence.
From Friday through Sunday DNR officials
will spread the word about the dangers of using alcohol and drugs while boating
and will look for violators.
DNR Law Enforcement say
more people will be on the waterways for the Fourth of July weekend than any
other holiday this year.
thing you can do to prevent a BUI is to have a designated driver. When you come
to the lake, we want you to have a good time. Just take a few seconds to get a
designated driver to ensure you have a safe operator," said Cpl. Bob Holley.
Authorities have arrested 4 people for BUI's at Lake Blackshear
since Memorial Day.
