Utah bar jail cell halloween drunk driving

When Halloween falls on a weekend, traffic fatalities rise 30 percent so this year police are trying to scare drunk drivers sober in Utah. SkySLC had its bar bathrooms transformed to look like a jail cells. To complete the effect patrons see themselves in a jail uniform when they look in the mirror.

“Ever wonder what a DUI looks like?” asks the campaign by the Utah Highway Patrol and the State Safety Office.

“You see yourself in that uniform, and behind you it’s your cell, and it’s like ‘do I want to do this?” manager Jacob Torres told KSTU.

If you’re still not too spooked to drive drunk, the Utah Highway Patrol setup checkpoints and blitzes.
