GOHS warns against impaired driving over St. Patrick's Day Weekend

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety wants to make sure everyone stays safe this St. Patrick's Day weekend.

GOHS officials held a news conference Friday to talk about the consequences of drunken driving – from causing a fatal wreck to facing thousands of dollars in fines.

The state is making sure people are aware of the ways they can get home such as a taxi, designated driver or scanning a QR code.

"Were working closely with the Savannah River Association - we have distributed 10,000 of these just in the riverfront area and it has a QR code that can be scanned by and iPhone or an android takes you right to our app - gives you information on Tow to Go; on every cab company in this city," said Harris Blackwood, GOHS director.
