Drink Coasters Show Phone App Designed to Deter DUIs

Posted: Updated:

In anticipation of the holiday weekend, The Governor's Office of Highway Safety is distributing 15,000 drink coasters in the popular bar districts of Savannah to help keep drunk drivers off the road. 

Bar patrons can use their smartphones to scan the QR code printed on the coasters. The code will send them to GOHS's Drive Sober, Georgia app, which provides a list of free and paid services in Savannah that will get them home safely. It is available for both Apple and Android devices.

"Savannah is the No. 1 destination in the state for this holiday weekend," says GOHS Director Harris Blackwood. "We want to make sure all the folks out celebrating St. Patrick's Day get home safely. While you're out, find our coasters and you'll have a list of sober ride options at your fingertips," added Blackwood.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety also says that law enforcement patrols will be stepped up this weekend.
