Help Nab a Drunk Driver, Make $100

Help Nab a Drunk Driver, Make $100

While you're behind the wheel this holiday, keep your eyes open for impaired drivers.  In addition to making the roads a little safer, reporting that driver could put some extra holiday cash in your pocket. 

The Safety Council of Palm Beach County Inc. conducts the Mobile Eyes program year round. 


Here's how it works:

You call 911 to report someone who may be impaired, including drivers who are swerving, following too closely, weaving in and out of lanes, etc. and be sure to tell the dispatcher that you want the call logged as a Mobile Eyes call. 

If an arrest is made based on your call, you'll get a $100 reward. 

Safety Council spokesperson Donna Bryan tells us that the money does not come from the taxpayers, it's from donations made to the Traffic Safety Committee. 

If you own a business, you may want to make a donation to the Mobile Eyes fund or pick up some reminder cards to hand out to your customers or clients.  Bryan says all donations go towards the rewards, not administrative costs.
