I slowed down and there were no cars coming. It was safe.

Slowing down is not the same as stopping. Your vehicle must come to a stop. California Vehicle Code section 587 defines “Stop or stopping” when prohibited shall mean any cessation of movement of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with the direction of a police officer or official traffic control device or signal.
