Drinking and driving is a dangerous practice that still far too many people do. It’s not surprising. People go out, have a few too many, and either think they’re “cool to drive” or just don’t care. It’s a very serious problem.

And a serious problem needs a serious solution.

In an effort to deter drunk driving, police in Kensington, Prince Edward Island, Canada will be picking the music on the way to jail, and you’re not going to like it.

According to a Facebook post by the Kensington Police Sevice, “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 offices copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.”

This is how they remind you not to drink and drive, apparently.

“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.

“So please, lets not ruin a perfectly good unopened copy of Nickelback. You don't drink and drive and we won't make you listen to it.”


Look, no one wants that. This holiday season, avoid Nickleback by getting a designated driver.
