Canadian cops punish drunk drivers with Nickelback music
by Jennifer Brett, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Drunk drivers across the U.S. face fines and possible jail time, but in one Canadian town, the punishment takes on a unique twist: Police will force you to listen to Nickelback.

Kensington, Prince Edward Island, has a population of around 1,500. It's unclear how popular Nickelback is in the town, but apparently, authorities feel that a forced concert by the band from Alberta, Canada, will be incentive enough for drivers to either stay sober or hail a cab.
"The Holiday Season is upon us and that means more social events, staff parties and alcohol based libations," the Kensington Police Service wrote on Facebook on Saturday. "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 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."
The post is accompanied by a photo of an unopened copy of Nickelback's third studio album, "Silver Side Up."
"No need to thank us," the police service wrote. "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 ... 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."
Kensington police encouraged drivers to designate a sober and responsible person to drive in the event others are unable to.
"To save any problems at the end of the night, know ahead of time who is the designated driver," the department advises. "Write down the number to a cab company or plan to stay over at friend's. Anything and everything you can do to eliminate the chances of drinking and driving."

The Shaggs would be the best possible musical deterrent
