Call in Drunk Driver, Get Paid $100

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.

Although Drunkbusters is paying special attention to the upcoming Christmas and New Year's weekends, the program runs year round in Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Will and Kane counties.

Potential callers should be able to explain the driving behavior and also identify specifics about the vehicle in question, such as its description and location.
