Memorial Day is always one of the busiest days of the year at the Salt River. Thousands of people spent the day relaxing on the water.
But police want to make sure that tubers drinking on the river don't get behind the wheel.
At Saguaro Lake, sheriff's deputies were out in force patrolling for drunk boaters. They kept an eye out for safety violations and people driving their boats under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
