Memorial weekend is here and East Texans are already hitting the water. But before you take the boat out, game wardens say make sure you have life jackets on board. One of the game wardens, Timothy Walker says, "Boat accidents happen on the spur of the moment and unfortunately there are injuries and if you don't have a life jacket on and you're incapacitated where you can't swim then odds are you're probably gonna drown." Keeping your speed down and watching for water hazards will also keep boaters safe.
