Georgia’s largest St. Patrick’s Day party is always in Savannah and this year will feature some four leaf clover decorations as the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) gets ready for the busy drinking holiday with thousands of drink coasters designed to deter DUI and encourage finding a sober driver.
The coasters are being distributed by Southern Eagle Distributing, and will be placed throughout savannah’s bar district. Each coaster has a QR code that can be scanned by smartphone. QR code stands for quick response code, which is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached.
After scanning the QR code you will be prompted to download the Drive Sober, Georgia app, which features a list of free and paid sober ride services available in Savannah and cities statewide. The app is available on both the Apple and Android markets.
“Savannah is one of the top St. Patrick’s Day destinations in the entire country, and that means not only will there be an increase in visitors to the city, but an increase in alcohol consumption and the potential for drunk driving,” GOHS Director Harris Blackwood said. “We want to make sure visitors and residents alike get home safely, so we’re distributing these coasters to make sure everyone has access to a sober ride.” According to WJCL News.
