    There's no legal requirement to walk a bike in a crosswalk. VA's contributory negligence law could easily find fault if you were hit while walking your bike through a crosswalk preceded by a flag man and followed by a marching band, with fireworks going off overhead, so worrying about what contributory negligence will do is just a depressing exercise in futility.

    This one kinda hits home a bit. I go through that intersection every now and then, but go right, turn right again on OD, and take the first right into the neighborhood. I don't proceed if there are vehicles coming, of course. I would not want to have to cross there--too many lanes and too much speed, where one vehicle might stop but the following ones might not.
