As summer winds down a lot of people are taking their boats out to the reservoir one last time. Lake Pueblo State Park wanted to emphasize safety this holiday weekend after two teens drowned over the summer.
Today rangers made sure people were wearing life jackets and weren't boating under the influence of alcohol. They issued about half a dozens tickets this weekend and say most people followed the rules.
"Saturday and Sunday were cold and we knew today was supposed to be warmer--in the 80s so we decided today was the day that we were going to make the most of it," said Teresa Peralta, a jet skier.
