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


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.
