Canadian Police Are Threatening To Punish Drunk Drivers With Nickleback

The police department in a small Canadian town has devised an interesting punishment for drunk drivers: in addition to being fined and having their licenses suspended, violators will be forced to endure the musical stylings one of Canada’s most divisive mainstream rock bands.

In a Facebook post, the Kensington Police Service declared they would “be out for the remainder of the 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.” Although the post has since been removed, it’s an interesting reminder of the Zero Tolerance policy that most jurisdictions have for drunk driving. Or at least the type of Zero Tolerance jurisdictions should have. Check out the post below:
