Texas Game Wardens are patrolling the state's public waters, Labor Day might be a great time for a day on the water, but if you'll be operating a boat, authorities want you to think before drinking.

Boating while intoxicated, BWI, is reportedly more dangerous than drinking and driving a motor vehicle and the penalties are just as severe.

Texas Game Wardens arrested 195 individuals who were operating a boat while intoxicated so far this year.

Last year, Texas authorities investigated six BWI cases and nine boating accidents over the holiday.
