SPOKANE --Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies patrolled the Spokane River Saturday, looking for people not wearing their life jackets.

Marine Patrol staff says the law they are enforcing requires anyone to have a personal flotation device when in moving water, regardless of the person’s age or what type of raft they use.

Moving water is defined as the stretch of the Spokane River from the State Line to the Centennial Trail Bridge near Plante’s Ferry Park.
 
Anyone not wearing a life vest could get a $76 ticket.
