I was pulled over for going down a one way street. After the stop, the officer claimed I had blood shot eyes, slurred speech etc etc and asked me to step out of the car. I blew .06 (nj limit is ,08), I only did the HGN test and I refused the others ( i know i should have refused all of them but i was trying to be nice ...i know stupid) My question is this. The one way sign, was obstructed by a planted tree. Since the officer pulled me over for (probable cause) of going through one way street. I have photo evidence that shows its blocked. Can everything after the stop be dismissed since I never truly broke the one way sign law? Since its obstructed. Also this was a small alley, and the parking lot I came out from did not have a (no left sign) the other lot on the other side did... I did not swerve or do any of the points used in determining a drunk driver with the exception of the 1 way. Thank you very much.

What exactly were you charged with? Call to discuss
You may have a chance of beating the one way/wrong way ticket based on the photographic evidence you have. I would have to see the photographs also. SInce you know your readings it doesn't sound like you were charged with DWI or Refusal. Anyway, on a complex issue like this or if you have to take the case to trial I would recommend you hire a lawyer to represent you. Please contact my office to discuss your case in more detail. Thank you.
