No pedestrian shall stand or stop in any roadway for the purpose of soliciting rides.
(Code 1958, § 29-591.1)
== Experiences ==
''I am hitching through Virginia as I write this from Lynchburg and have had a decent experience so far. My rate of catching rides has been about equal to the national average, maybe a little better, and so far I have yet to have a police encounter.''

 {{stub}}''In November 2014 I was on my way from Roanoke to D.C. It was very easy to get to Roanoke. But to D.C. was horrible. First a law enforcement officer gave me a ride (it rained and he felt sorry) to Harrisonburg. There I was chased away from the shoulder of an Interstate entry two times. I was on a tight schedule so I didn't want to argue (I stood on the shoulder before the famous signs saying <No pedestrians .... shall be on the highway behind this sign>. There was a truck stop, but everyone seemed going south. Finally when it got dark someone took me to another truck stop. But same there. Noone was going to D.C. (I-66). A truck driver took me to Strasburg, where I slept in the woods at -5°C/20°F next to a truck stop surrounded by fences. Next day was ok though. I was even driven right next to Lincoln memorial.''
