I had that issue a few years ago. There was about ten inches of dirt level with the edge of the road, then it dropped off. I waved to the Law Enforcement officer behind me, looked for a wider spot to stop, then finally realized I wasn't going to find one and just stopped at the edge of the road. His big SUV did a reasonable job of blocking any traffic that might come along.

Stop at a wide spot if you can, but if not, you stop and let them tell you what to do.
