There will be no mercy from the Utah Highway Patrol this holiday season for drivers found to be on the roads under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
UHP Sgt. Todd Royce said Thursday that as part of "National Impaired Driving Prevention Month," troopers will be out in force and ready to take offenders out from behind the wheel, slap on the handcuffs and escort them to jail.
"If you want go out and have a good time during the holiday season, go ahead and do so. However, make sure that you have arrangements to get home safely," Royce said.
