Drunk-boating penalties to be stiffer this summer

When Randy Houston was growing up near Lake Martin, people had a pretty casual attitude about drinking while boating.

 

“It was just a given that you would throw a couple of six packs in a cooler and go ride around on the lake,” Houston said. “Everybody knows that is not a smart thing to do in a car, but I think it’s taken a while to get to the lake, because the lake is seen as more of a recreational area.”
