2017 is already proving to be the year we deserve, the year that is a reward for suffering through the sh#$ that was 2016. 

Case in point: Ed Sheeran gifted us with two new songs and we have been playing them on repeat. 

Road trip-worthy? You betcha!

Despite our enthusiasm at Ed's new songs 'Castle On The Hill' and 'Shape Of You', the police aren't exactly taking the same liking to the song thanks to the lyrics. 

As we've already stated, these are some road trip-worthy tracks, especially 'Castle On The Hill', so it comes into focus as to why police are a little concerned. 

In the song, Ed sings "driving at 90 down those country lanes", supposedly through the roads of Suffolk where he grew up.

Suffolk police Sgt. Chris Harris has promptly issued a warning to all their young drivers and residents, responding to the song by tweeting for everyone to "Please slow down".

Ed reiterates how much he "can't wait to go home" in the song, and in recent interviews, and thus the Sgt. made sure to say "Know you want to get home but please slow down on #SuffolkRoads."

We're sure Ed will be a good man and drive safely this holidays, and we prompt you all to do the same!
