STATEWIDE - Summer is a time for good weather, good food and good fun. Utah law enforcement agencies and Lowe's Home Improvement Centers throughout Utah are joining forces to remind Utahns to keep things fun, and keep their summer gatherings free from drunk driving.

Two unique designs will make chefs want to toss their "Kiss the Cook" aprons aside. 



The officer-inspired look reminds cookout attendees that "Cops are everywhere this weekend." And they are: all summer long, officers will be working overtime shifts to remove impaired drivers from Utah's roadways. When you plan your summer activities, make sure that a safe way home is one of the first things you plan.

The inmate-inspired look provides a glimpse of what cookout attendees will see if they don't plan a safe way home: "This is a bad way to end a BBQ." Most definitely a bad way - jail, an impounded car, a suspended license - and that's if someone doesn't get seriously injured or killed.

Lowe's Home Improvement Centers throughout Utah will be giving the aprons to patrons who ask or who purchase a new BBQ for their summer celebrations. They will also be displaying banners reminding all customers to have a safe summer.


Even if you don't drink alcohol, remember that your best defense against a drunk driver is to always wear your seat belt!

Keep your summer safe and fun - designate a sober driver, call a sober friend or cab - just make sure you don't drink and drive.
