Palm Beach County Florida thinks they have possibly found a new way to combat drivers operating motor vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Their “Mobile Eyes” program encourages citizens to be on the lookout for individuals that may be driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs and possibly assist officers in arresting them for breaking the law. Citizens are rewarded $100 for each person that is reported AND arrested as driving under the influence through the Mobile Eyes program.
The program is year-round and as of December 30, 2013, 28 people had been recipients of the Mobile Eyes $100 reward. The program is even more active during the holidays, since the holidays are busier due to people celebrating with their family and friends. In turn, law enforcement is busier being on the lookout for impaired drivers. It is important to keep the ones that make the unfortunate choice to drink and drive off the roads to help secure the safety of everyone else.
The Palm Beach County Florida Safety Council does not reward callers that have called after a DUI crash has occurred or to anyone that has already collected $500 in Mobile Eyes rewards.
Like the forced blood draws that have become routine, this type of Orwellian policy will spread to Georgia and the rest of the United States. If East Germany still existed, they would be proud.
