The Park Avenue Sobriety Test is an album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joel Plaskett, released March 17, 2015 on Pheromone Recordings.

The album's title derives from a nickname that Plaskett's former neighbour Roy Logan gave to a metal guardrail at the corner of Park Avenue and King Street in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia; while the curve is not geometrically unusual and can be easily navigated by a conscientious driver, there have been several instances of impaired drivers mishandling the turn and smashing their cars into the guardrail.[2] The title also forms an acronym for the word "past", mirroring the album's primary themes of Plaskett examining his life as he approached his 40th birthday in April 2015.
