    The sentence is the following: The rainy day had forced them to stop, seeking shelter in a way-stop along the road

    Yo no he encontrado nada al respecto. Pero me imagino que será un área de descanso o algo similar.

    The way I see it, it is like a rest-stop (rest area) in an interstate highway in the U.S.

    I couldn't find this compound word, but from the context I guess it's a shelter. It could also be a way-station: a place where people stop to eat and rest when they are on a long journey.

    Bye Art :) ;) :p

    I would imagine that would be a good description. I personally don't have much experience with such a phrase as "way-stop" but if I had read it just as such, I would conjure up ideas of a stop along the highway, a rest area, as Beaver suggested.
    Perhaps it depends on the time period we're talking about in order to discern the exact nature of this "way-stop", but anyway, y'all have the right idea. ;)
