    I take that to mean that a pedestrian should not start speed walking across a crosswalk if the pedestrian can discern that a motorist going 30 MPH is twenty feet away, but that it's perfectly OK to...

    That really really sucks. Why 3 points? Whose decision is that? Considering the relative lethality of the infractions (I.e. that drunk driving kills 10,000 people in the US annually), if a DUI is...

    Which law? You keep making anti-pedestrian assertions without citing actual statutes. I'm not aware of any Virginia law that forbids crossing outside of marked or unmarked crosswalks.

    It's nice the officer attempted an apology, but IMO it wasn't very good. "My apologies for any confusion caused."? No. The officers didn't cause any confusion. Confusion by the officer, rather, was...
