As they seemingly do every year during our annual SeaFair weekend, law enforcement officers from all around Western Washington are planning to take to the water on Lake Washington. They will be looking for people suspected of piloting watercrafts while under the influence of intoxicants; the heightened patrols will begin in earnest on Friday and will conclude sometime late Sunday.
The Seafair BUI/ DUI emphasis patrol will be staged out of Proctor Landing on Mercer Island. In addition to a temporary 60 foot dock created to accommodate the increased marine patrol units. The Proctor Landing site will also have: (1) a Mobile Impaired Driving Unit, out-fitted with three breath-test analyzers and two holding cells, and (2) a large fenced detention facility to hold people arrested for committing BUI/ DUI and any other criminal offense(s) while SeaFair weekend is underway. In addition to BUI patrols on Lake Washington, it is anticipated that law enforcement officers will also be conducting increased DUI patrols on the highways and surface streets leading to and from all weekend Seafair events.
