Nickelback cannot catch a break. A police department in Kensington, Canada, is planning to punish drunk drivers by forcing them to listen to one of the most-hated bands in the police car when arrested for the crime.

CANADIAN POLICE THREATENS DRUNK DRIVERS WITH NICKELBACK

“When we catch you, and we can catch you,” the department warned on their Facebook page, “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 offices copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.”

The effort is a unique and humorous way the police are trying to combat a serious issue, and Constable Robb Hartlen claims he doesn’t even hate the band.

“We are just using a different approach to get an age-old message communicated,” Hartlen said. “As long as it starts the ‘Don’t drink and drive’ dialogue, we’re happy with that.”

“So please, let’s not ruin a perfectly good unopened copy of Nickelback, the department added. “You don’t drink and drive and we won’t make you listen to it.”
