The weather forecast looks good for the upcoming Labor Day weekend and that means plenty of South Floridians will be out on the water fishing, diving or just cruising in their boats.
After several high-profile boating deaths, police are showing boaters they are not going to tolerate anyone operating a boat while under the influence of alcohol.
Boating under the influence, BUI, is a serious issue and continues to be a major problem across the nation. In an effort to raise awareness and crackdown on BUIs, local and nationwide officials will launch Operation Dry Water from June 28-30th.
A day on the water can be a lot of fun over the July 4th holiday weekend, but state and local enforcement agencies want all boaters to play it safe.
