Police in Kensington, P.E.I. posted status on their Facebook page saying that they will force drunk drivers during holidays to listen NICKELBACK‘s “Silver Side Up” album.
A post on the Kensington Police Service’s Facebook page encourages people to plan to use a designated driver or cabs when going out, and reminds them police will be out “looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive.”
“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’s copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail,” reads the post, alongside a photo of Nickelback’s 2001 album Silver Side Up.
“So please, let’s not ruin a perfectly good unopened copy of Nickelback. You don’t drink and drive and we won’t make you listen to it.”
“What we were trying to do is put a little humour into a very serious matter of drinking and driving,” said Const. Robb Hartlen, who authored the post. “What it does is it sparks that conversation, it pushes that idea that everybody knows with a little bit of humour.
