Utah Highway Patrol troopers and dozens of local law enforcement officers introduce the larger-than-life snow folks to remind shoppers to have a safe and happy holiday season, free from drunken driving, at The Gateway in Salt Lake City on Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012. A splattered snowman, body on the hood of a car, head on the ground, is a graphic reminder that being hit by a drunk driver can have far-reaching consequences to humans, too.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers and dozens of local law enforcement officers introduce the larger-than-life snow folks to remind shoppers to have a safe and happy holiday season, free from drunken driving, at The Gateway in Salt Lake City on Thursday.

"We are asking all Utahns to help keep our roads safe this holiday season. Don't drink and drive. Help those who have been drinking get home safe, and call us if you see someone driving impaired. Together, we can celebrate a safe and DUI-free holiday," said Sgt. Ted Tingey from the Utah Highway Patrol.
