Washington PostAuthorities in Canada are willing to do what it takes to crack down on drunken driving during the holiday season.

That includes threatening people with Nickelback.

In a Facebook post this month, police in Kensington, a town in Prince Edward Island, encouraged those attending social gatherings to make sure they had a designated driver, or write down the number for a taxi company. Make arrangements to stay at the home of a friend, they suggested in the post, whatever you need to do to be safe.

Then, the agency explained what might happen if you didn’t.

“Now, 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,” the post read. “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 offices copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.”

To recap: this police department keeps an unopened Nickelback CASSETTE TAPE in their office.

This punishment, while very clever, sparked outrage with some people on Facebook who like Nickelback and take offense to this tactic.

Then the comments on this post got so extreme someone from America actually threatened to NOT move to Canada:
