(WXIA) -- Vacationers will pack the lakes this holiday weekend, and boaters should keep some new rules in mind.
Patrolling on the lake this weekend will be high, as DNR rangers will look for proper lighting on boats after sunset, life vests and those who have had too much to drink.
Rangers want to see children and all passengers wearing life vests that fit properly.
Boater Randale Keisler said he won't let anyone on his boat without a vest.
"I don't want to dig any of my neighbors or my family out of this lake," he said.
Rangers of the Department of Natural Resources know before the Memorial Day weekend is over, they'll encounter young boaters who are not playing it safe.
DNR Ranger Zach Hardy noted that going by a vessel, seeing a baby not wearing a life vest is an example of unsafe practice.
