Delaware is a state in the United States of America.


DEL CODE § 4147 : Delaware Code - Section 4147: PEDESTRIANS SOLICITING RIDES OR BUSINESS (c) No person shall stand in a highway for the purpose of soliciting a ride.

(22) "Highway" means the entire width between boundary lines of every way or place of whatever nature open to the use of the public as a matter of right for purposes of vehicular travel, but does not include a road or driveway upon grounds owned by private persons, colleges, universities or other institutions.

Similar to the Nevada state law, this basically makes hitchhiking illegal due to the definition of highway meaning the entire property of a right of way, hitchhiking along a shoulder or berm is still illegal.
