Don’t Stop In Middle Of Highway 95

A Berry Picker who came thisclose to getting a ticket called to warn others here re: the proper way to cross Highway 95 intersections that don't have traffic lights. Do you know it's against the law to go halfway across the intersection, say, at Miles Avenue/Hayden, and wait there until it is safe to cross the other two lanes? The Berry Picker followed another car across, stopped at the opening between the four lanes, and got nabbed by an ISP officer when she completed a turn. Frankly, that's the only way I cross the intersection at those openings. It's too difficult to find a clearing at certain times of the day to go all the way across without stopping in the middle. Happily, the ISP officer didn't ticket the unaware driver.

Question: Do you stop at the certain section of H95 intersections without stoplights?
