Sharon Foster, Chair of the Washington State Liquor Control Board said, “Far too many Washington state citizens are killed or injured by impaired drivers. The Click It 2 Ride program, by encouraging social responsibility and providing alternatives to driving after drinking, supports the public safety efforts of the Washington State Liquor Control Board.”
In the first 22 days of the campaign, 1-800-TAXICAB has reported receiving 416 calls, and there were 514 page views. That translates into 416 potentially impaired drivers taken off the streets.
The Click it 2 Ride campaign will initially run through the winter holidays until January 2, 2012. Additional campaigns are planned throughout 2012 during times of known higher alcohol consumption, such as St. Patrick’s Day and Memorial Day through the 4th of July.
Ocean; an artist and designer based in Singapore has some very artistic QR Codes:
Liam Rainsford painted a few pictures specifically for printing as Christmas Cards. Check out ‘Prints from your artwork‘,’Going home for Christmas‘, ‘Christmas Morning‘. Digital printing allows small quantities of particular designs to be printed economically. He printed 2 card designs which have details on the back of each card, of where the recipient can watch the YouTube video of the painting of that card. He also included a QR Code on the back of the cards which link to the video. Here is a video of the Christmas Morning painting process.
I don’t know how it works, can’t believe it works as a QR Code. Proves QR Codes use the 3 main corner blocks and then registers the different coordinates on a basis of being > 50% or < 50% black and white. The QR Code links to his cajun restaurant on the east side of Indianapolis, with this much creativity put into a simple QR Code his food must be excellent! If you’ve tried his food please leave a comment.
