A crackdown on drink-driving has led to 17 arrests in its first week, North Yorkshire Police said.
A spokesman said so far 11 people had been charged and five arrests were the result of information passed on from the public.
The force's campaign urges people to "dob in a drink driver or grass on a drug driver".
Sgt Pete Stringer said: "Responsible members of the public are telling us who [drink and drug drivers] are."
