PEI police use threat of Nickelback to deter drunk drivers

Nickelback

Nickelback The police in the town of Kensington, PEI have found a funny way to tackle a serious problem, and its sure to keep even the most stubborn of people from offending.

On its Facebook page Saturday, Prince Edward Island’s Kensington Police Service posted that in honour of holiday spirit they will not only be handing our large fines, a suspension from driving, and a criminal charge if you’re stupid enough to drink and drive, but they will be kind enough to let you listen to Nickelback’s album “Silver Side Up” on your way to the station.

“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 post reads.

Maybe it’s not waterboarding or sleep deprivation, but being forced to listen to Nickelback does seem a little inhumane. Luckily the Kensington Police have pointed out a few very logical solutions to avoid being put in the situation.

“So, the Holiday Season is upon us and that means more social events, staff parties and alcohol based libations. Now, Because of that fact, it logically means more people need to plan their nights driving duties. To save any problems at the end of the night, know ahead of time who is the Designated Driver. Write down the number to a cab company or plan to stay over at friends. Anything and everything you can do to eliminate the chances of drinking and driving.”

Hopefully by the end of the season their CD is still sealed and nobody had to suffer through the likes of “Hangnail” and “Good Times Gone”.

Here’s the post in its entirety:

“Kensington Police Drinking and Driving Gift. Christmas Bonus Edition

So, the Holiday Season is upon us and that means more social events, staff parties and alcohol based libations. Now, Because of that fact, it logically means more people need to plan their nights driving duties. To save any problems at the end of the night, know ahead of time who is the Designated Driver. Write down the number to a cab company or plan to stay over at friends. Anything and everything you can do to eliminate the chances of drinking and driving.

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. 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 offices 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.

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.

Happy Saturday Everyone!!
