Canadian police forces drunk drivers to listen to Nickelback

IANS  |  Ottawa 

Ahead of Christmas, police in Kensington, Island, Canada, have announced that people caught in drink and driving cases will not only face the usual charges but will also be forced to listen to Canadian rock band Nickleback on their way to jail.

The Kensington Police Service posted the ominous warning on its Facebook page, reports variety.com.

"Now, with that being said, know that the Kensington Police Service will be out for the remainder of year looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive," the post read.

The post further read: "And when we catch you, and we will catch you, on top of a hefty fine, a criminal charge and a year's driving suspension, we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the office copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.

"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."

The warning was accompanied with a photograph of a cassette of Nickelback's 2001 album "Silver Side Up".

Other police departments have similar punishment for DUIs. The Wyoming, Minnesota police will play songs of British band One Direction instead of Nickelback.
