Maybe It's Me?

I guess it doesn't matter anymore where you stop if the police pull you over. I always thought you were supposed to pull over to the right shoulder of the road or into a parking lot. Since I've been in Florida and more so the past few years, I noticed people stopping in left hand turn lanes, on the median or even in the right lane of a three lane road - even when there is a safe place to pull over within feet of where they stopped. And the police don't seem to mind. This picture shows a car stopped in the right lane and directly in front of a cross street. There is an open parking lot just in front of the car. Heck, they could have just made a right on the cross street and pulled over. The police just took care of business and let it go. Is this standard operating procedure across the country now?
