Odor of an Alcoholic Beverage

It is legal to have a drink and drive.  However, most of us know that an “odor” of an alcoholic beverage can lead to all sorts of problems.  I have represented clients who have tried all types of masks when they are pulled over by police officers.  Often, to avoid the hassle of field sobriety tests and the distinct possibility of an arrest, they will light a cigarette or cigar, chug mouthwash, or put in gum.  Other more interesting tricks include chewing on a raw potato, putting pennies (or nickles) in your mouth or biting your lip until it bleeds.

Experienced officers will tell you that most of these “tricks” are easy to recognize and not all that effective.  Jif to the rescue!  Peanut butter, according to officers, is the best masking agent for the “odor” of alcohol.  So keep a package of peanut butter crackers in the car or have a peanut butter sandwich with your coffee before you leave the bar.
