Boat patrols this weekend

Washington law enforcement officers will conduct their annual emphasis patrol Friday through Sunday to detect boaters under the influence of alcohol on the state’s waterways.

Alcohol has been a factor in three of Washington’s eight boating deaths so far in 2011 and 30 percent of boating fatalities since 2004.

Several law enforcement agencies are planning additional emphasis patrols later in the season during times when heavy boating traffic is expected.
