Informing about a suspected drink-driver

A while ago I think there was a reward system for giving information to the police about a suspected drink-driver. Does this still exist do you know?

Crimestoppers offers a reward of up to £1,000 to anyone who calls the charity to report criminal behaviour if the information leads to an arrest and charge.

Regional police forces often mount anti-drink drive campaigns which highlight the above fact. For example, Derbyshire Police's campaign (ran throughout December 2011) resulted in 28 people...

Reward system?
They will probably not be interested.
Wouldn't surprise me.
'Cashing in' on dobbing people in is also not a good way to go.
Free case of Becks maybe?

For example, Derbyshire Police's campaign (ran throughout December 2011) resulted in 28 people calling Crimestoppers to shop a drink-driver, but every caller declined the offer of a reward. Ten people called the charity during the 2010 campaign. A decade ago the maximum reward was £500.

Thanks ABerrant. That clears it up.
you cannot just ring them and say someone you know drink drives... they have to catch them at it
of course there is a reward system

if you pay the police they give you all sorts of information
just tune into the Leveson inquiry
My friends and I once got a delivery driver fired because she was drunk and driving with a child in the car. We got no reward :|
-- answer removed --
why needs rewards, surely just to get someone of the road that could cause an accident is reward enough
Reward or no reward its your duty to inform on someone who is obviously drunk and intending to drive.
no question...report them via crimestoppers asap - it's anonymous if that's your fear of doing so. my 17 yr old cousin was killed riding his motorbike home by his p!ssed best mate in a car travelling behind him who was twice the legal limit but stated in court he felt 'fine' to drive. i think people who drink (or drug) drive are disgusting. i will never learn to drive because of the (legal) medication i am on as it affects my judgement/skills required for driving legally. those who choose to do so in the face of all information about drink driving are despicable. so...report!!! x
