Call in Drunk Driver, Get Paid $100
Chicago, IL. Dec. 21 – This holiday season, you can earn a little extra cash by reporting suspected drunk drivers on the roads.
The Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM), an anti-drunk driving group, is expanding its program throughout the streets of Illinois for the next two weekends, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
The "Drunkbusters" program gives callers the opportunity to collect $100 for reporting an intoxicated driver. In order to be paid, the call must lead to a DUI arrest.
Drunkbusters was established in 1990 and has since given out more than $445,000, which resulted in the arrests of more than 4,450 impaired motorists, according to the Sun Times.
Note: The $100 does not depend on the person reported being convicted — only for being arrested. And the cop responding to the call already has you as a witness to what you claim is drunken driving, so chances of an arrest are high. I wonder how many of those 4,450 arrested motorists were actually convicted?
