BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If you're looking for a little extra holiday cash, a simple call to 911 could yield you $100. All you have to do is report a drunk driver. If the officer makes an arrest, you get the cash.
The program is sponsored by the Palm Beach County Safety Council which tells us there is a $500 lifetime limit when it comes to how much money you can receive. Also, you can't call after a crash — which makes sense since the goal is to get drunk drivers off the road before someone gets hurt.
Police officers, already paid to find drunk drivers, are not eligible.
The program extends throughout Palm Beach County.
