Canadian Cops Force Drunk Drivers To Listen To Nickelback
This counts as cruel and unusual punishment right?
Sometimes, cops will do whatever it takes to try and figure out a way to stop drunk driving in their city. Police in Canada are now trying a unique and musical way to try and stop drunk driving.
The Kensington Police on Prince Edward Island published a Facebook post last Saturday warned residents of trying to drive home after drinking at holiday parties.
The Facebook post read:
"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 office’s copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.”
Residents probably thought the police were joking when they made the post. To show residents that they mean business, they added a photo of Nickelback's 2001 album, "Silver Side Up" sitting still in its package.
The police department then added one last comment:
“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.”
Most people would hate that ride home but what if you are a fan of Nickelback? Is this a dream come true? Drunkenly sitting in the back of a cop car after you're down to the bottom of every bottle, belting out "How you remind me." Sounds like a usual Saturday night of drunk karaoke to me. Except for the whole getting arrested part.
