On June 23, 2022, JacobsEye Marketing, on behalf of the GOHS launched the Drive Sober media campaign throughout the state of Georgia.

The campaign emphasized the importance of either giving keys to a friend or calling a ride share if someone feels they have had too much to drink, especially over the July 4 holiday weekend. By doing so, serious consequences of having an accident or being arrested can be avoided.

GOHS provided audio and video assets to run ads in radio, television and audio/video streaming to reach Georgia residents with this important safety message.

The primary audience for this campaign were Georgia residents aged 21 and over.

Overall, the campaign delivered the following media from June 23-July 4, 2022 (with some exceptions of under delivery where makegoods were extended into the month).
