2016 Labor Day Holiday Boating Weekend

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE --- The Labor Day holiday, the final major weekend of the 2016 summer boating season is Sept. 2-5. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wants to emphasize the use of life jackets while boating in a safe and responsible manner.

The TWRA wants all those who visit the waterways to have an enjoyable time. However, TWRA officers will be on the watch for dangerous boating behavior, such as boating under the influence (BUI) and other reckless operation.

To date in 2016 on Tennessee waters, there have been 17 boating-related fatalities. TWRA officers have made 105 BUI arrests. During the 2015 Labor Day weekend, there were six BUI arrests. Officers also issued 70 citations and assisted 71 boaters in need.
