KENSINGTON, Prince Edward Island, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Police in Canada threatened potential holiday drunk drivers by forcing them to listen to Nickelback in their squad car.

Kensington Police Service shared a photo of Nickelback's "Silver Side Up" alongside a stern warning to "those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive" during the holiday season.

"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 stated.

The police encouraged citizens attending holiday parties to decide on a designated driver ahead of time, keep the number of local cab companies handy or make plans to stay at a friend's house instead of driving home drunk.

Those not willing to comply will be met with a punishment equal to their poor judgment on the ride to jail.

"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," police said.
