What would be beneficial in proving that your vehicle was safely off the roadway is securing testimony by the arresting officer stating your vehicle did not pose a danger to the public. With this testimony, no jury could find that we did not prove the defense. Without the officer’s testimony, the jury may conclude the vehicle was not safely off the roadway. Facts they will use to support this conclusion are: your vehicle was five feet from the freeway, your vehicle was facing the wrong direction, and the maneuvers needed to merge onto the freeway posed a risk to other drivers. Consequently, the success of this defense is not an absolute. The state has a strong case against you.
