Cops to Force Drunk Drivers to Listen to Nickelback

Nov 30, 2016

Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. The Kensington Police on Prince Edward Island have come up with a unique form of cracking down on drunk driving — by promising to make inebriated drivers listen to oft-maligned Canadian rock band Nickelback on the ride to jail.

In a Facebook post published last Saturday, the police cautioned residents from allowing holiday parties to impair their judgment, telling drunk drivers that " when we catch you, and we will catch you, on top of a hefty fine, a criminal charge and a years driving suspension we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the office's copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail."

To drive the point home, the Kensington police included a photo of Nickelback's 2001 album, "Silver Side Up," before closing with one last ominous statement.

" Now, now, no need to thank us, we figure if you are foolish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking then a little Chad Kroeger and the boys is the perfect gift for you."
