Leprechauns across the Wasatch Front have a message for those who choose to imbibe this St. Patrick's Day weekend: "Keep yer pot o' gold. Don't drive drunk."
Statuettes of leprechauns, courtesy of the Utah Highway Patrol, have been placed in dozens of bars to serve as reminders to celebrate the holiday with safe, alcohol-free driving. Also, servers at the various bars will be wearing green T-shirts with "Leprechauns Against Drunk Driving" printed on the front.
In addition to the visible reminders placed in bars, the UHP and other city law enforcement agencies will be setting up DUI patrols and sobriety checkpoints throughout the weekend.
