Your baby seat analogy is flawed. In this case, you're having to make the
decision between not pulling the car *entirely* off onto the shoulder when you
have a mechanical breakdown, and risking being hit by another car - or pulling
all the way onto that shoulder that looks like it's rather soft and crumbly and
likely to spill your car into the ravine.
(We actually had a case of that locally just a few weeks ago - a school bus
going down one of the dirt roads around here went off the side.. then a dump
truck coming down the road *also* went off the side just a few yards after
passing the bus.. It was believed that in both cases, the soft shoulder
contributed to the vehicle's sliding sideways and ending up on their sides...)
