Another sign that America is turning into a police state .Since 2001 , Palm Beach County , Florida has had in place a Mobile Eyes program . The basic concept is a person can report a drunk or impaired driver by calling 911 . If a DUI arrest is made , the person that makes the call gets a hundred bucks. No conviction is required .
