7. Turn-signal guidelines will be upgraded from “Only if the spirit moves you” to “Go ahead, it won’t bite.”


6. Single-occupant decals will increase in price from $50 to $100 to cover costs of the Utah Highway Patrol’s new babysitting service.


5. Express lanes will be made open to drunk drivers on holiday weekends; proof of at least 0.08 blood-alcohol level required at breathalyzer checkpoints.


4. Vehicles with “Orrin 2006” stickers automatically granted full express-lane access.
