Becker County, MN (WDAY TV) - A prime target for patrol officers and sheriff's deputies are the roads leading to and from river tubing sites.

The Becker County Sheriff's office says it will have an absolute zero tolerance for drunk drivers and underage drinkers this holiday.

Fourth of July is one of the busiest holidays for tubers on the Otter Tail River, and with this heat businesses are having a tough time just keeping up with demand.

Many tubers we talked to said they've learned from previous mistakes.

Robert Ziegler - Designated Driver: "I seen them volunteer on Facebook so I volunteered to do it. I've been in trouble before for drinking and driving, so it was the polite thing to do."
