Law enforcement and Kerr Lake officials are reminding boaters to remain cautious and attentive on the water as the summer season comes to close.

“In the last couple years, I’ve actually seen people texting while they are driving a boat,” said Frank Timberlake of the Kerr Lake Park Watch. “People should not be paying attention to things other than operating the boat.”
