Although there have not been a lot of posted alerts or notices this year about increased DUI patrols during Seafair weekend, it can only be presumed that it is yet again — tis’ the season for BUI/ DUI emphasis patrols. As in years past, Washington State law-enforcement agencies will undoubtedly be patrolling Lake Washington, and targeting highways and streets leading to and from all Seafair events. They surely will be looking for people suspected of piloting a boat while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, as well as driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Generally, police agencies have increased BUI/ DUI patrols during Seafair weekend. Seafair 2012, without a doubt, will be no different.
In years past, the Seafair BUI/ DUI emphasis patrols have been home-ported at Proctor Landing on Mercer Island. Last year a temporary 60-foot dock was set up at the site to accommodate the marine-patrol units. Additionally, a Mobile Impaired Driving Unit, with three breath test machines and two holding cells, was also on hand, and several large fenced detention facilities were set up to hold people arrested for driving under the influence and boating under the influence, as well as other criminal types of violations.
