Roller hockey skates on thr road.

I have revisited ice hockey after 30 years last summer so I also bought some roller hockey skates to keep my skating up when ice time is rare. Am I crazy to use skates with no brakes out on the street? Even though I have decent agility on the ice, I feel like a rank beginner on wheels. I have to plan ahead a block to stop and down hill is all about hoping no one else is on the street until I slow down.
Any advice or roller blade techniques (especially stopping) would be appreciated.
