UPI News Service, 12/31/2012 

A Florida county is offering $100 rewards to motorists who report drunken drivers to the authorities.

Palm Beach County officials said the Mobile Eyes program, which began in 2001, has experienced a drop in participation, with only 17 rewards handed out this year as compared to the usual 30 or 40 per year. So officials are spreading word of the rewards in an attempt to increase participation, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Monday.

The program awards $100 to people who report drunken drivers if the reported motorist is arrested on a driving under the influence charge.

"We thought the holidays was a great time to remind people," said Donna Bryan, spokeswoman for the county's Safety Council. "Just getting one (drunken driver) off the road is a good thing."
