Police In Canada Are Going To Make Drink-Drivers Listen To Nickelback As Punishment

This is how they remind us

A police force in Canada are going to punish drink-drivers by making them listen to Nickelback.

Residents of Prince Edward Island have been warned that, in addition to fines and criminal charges, they will also be "made to listen to the officer's copy of Nickelback on the way to jail".

Local force, Kensington Police, posted the warning in a festive announcement about the dangers of drink-driving on Facebook, adding "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."

A cruel, unusual deterrent for a serious crime.
