Remember to share the waterway and have appropriate life jackets for all on board while in a vessel on the water, states the highway patrol.

Missouri has a lot to offer for the Memorial Day holiday weekend with its state parks, lakes, sporting events and attractions. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, safety should be part of the holiday.

“Expect more travelers on Missouri’s roadways and an increase in boating traffic on the state’s lakes and rivers. Drivers and boat operators are reminded to follow all Missouri’s laws and be courteous. Always wear a seat belt when traveling in a vehicle and wear a life jacket when near, on or in the water,” states a release from the highway patrol.
