Local police have warned they will be targeting drivers listening to trance this Easter weekend.

The ban, which specifically aims to prevent people from listening to Darude’s Sandstorm while driving, will run until Tuesday – after a spade of incidents involving the popular 90’s tune.

Shoalhaven man, Nathan Wells had a brush with death earlier this year while blasting the song on a road trip with friends.

“It’s just such a banger” said the 39 year old grocery store worker.

“I completely lost control during that first drop. It felt like I was on pingers at 2003-era warehouse party in the ‘Gong,”

“The last thing I remember was losing consciousness while I was trapped upside down in the windshield. It’s such a fucking tune,”

NSW police spokesman Sgt. Mike Nolan said the song was dangerous for everyone on the road.

“Driver fatigue and Darude’s sandstorm are a potent and deadly mix” he said.

“It’s impossible to drive for 5 minutes straight with no hands on the wheel.

“I don’t care how euphoric the song makes you feel, driving to Darude will be placed in the same category as driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol until midnight on Easter Monday.

    Nanny state. What are they going to stop next? Listening to AM radio whilst driving? What about all those old k*#ts listening to Radio National half-dead-one-foot-in-the-grave north shore types. I bet they’ve never had a good pinger in their life.
