Boating DUI Reminder for Memorial Day Weekend

Lake Eufaula is a hot spot for the long Memorial Day Weekend.

But, before you hit the water, boaters should be aware of the recent change to the legal limit of intoxication.

Just a few days ago, Georgia lowered the legal blood-alocohol-level for boaters from .1 to .08 to match the level for drivers on the road.

More officers will be on the water enforcing the new boating under the influence of law.

Law enforcement also wants to remind boaters that every passenger in the boat must wear a life jacket.
