A program in Florida’s Palm Beach County provides rewards of $100 to people who report drunk drivers to local police.
The Safety Council of Palm Beach County said the Mobile Eyes program helps law enforcement personnel arrest people suspected of driving while impaired.
The Palm Beach Post reported that as of Monday, 28 people had received the $100 Mobile Eyes reward this year.
To qualify, the person reporting the impaired driver must ask that the 911 call be coded as a Mobile Eyes call. The officer must make an arrest after validating that the individual is a DUI offender.
Officials said the money for the rewards mostly come from police agencies and corporate donations.
