Canadian Town Will Punish Drunk Drivers by Making Them Listen to Nickelback

Nov 30, 2016

A town in Canada has hit upon a musical way to prevent drunk driving incidents over the holiday season.

The Kensington police service announced on Saturday that people caught driving drunk will have to listen to Nickelback on the way to the police station.

"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," the police department said in a Facebook post.

Accompanying the post was a photo of an unopened copy of Nickelback's Silver Side Up.

"So please, let's not ruin a perfectly good unopened copy of Nickelback," the police said. "You don't drink and drive and we won't make you listen to it."
