The Kensington Police Department in PEI is threatening to play the band you love to hate, Nickelback, to anyone they arrest for drunk driving.
They wrote in a Facebook post, ” Kensington Police Service will be out for the remainder of year looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive. 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.”
They go on to say, “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.”
Constable Robb Hartlen told CBC , “What we were trying to do is put a little humour into a very serious matter of drinking and driving. What it does is it sparks that conversation, it pushes that idea that everybody knows with a little bit of humour.”
