The letter of the law has no mention of the pedestrian. So a Pedestrian here is not the issue as any sane driver knows that even on a crosswalk on a main road, a pedestrian has right of way but not many in the state of VA know that. It's not taught in the driver's ed. So, it's not the pedestrian nor it's the stop signs on an empty road with one car on it. The law is only in place to make state couple of moola that's all.
