New law in Virginia (USA)

This law takes effect today, July 1, 2020

Stopping for Pedestrians

Drivers must stop, not just yield, for pedestrians in marked and unmarked crosswalks until the pedestrian has cleared the road. The Virginia Department of Public Transportation says this applies to lanes in both directions if it's a two-way road.

I would be asking for a clarification on that, the way that reads a pedestrian can cross a road at any point and all traffic must come to a complete stop and wait till they finish crossing.

oh dear, it made it here too! at least im in PA not VA but thats not far away...
im originaly from Europe and that law been there for a while, its just too much, exactly drivers have to stop for pedestrians even on unmarked crossing,in both direction, i watch it and to me it seems too dangerous manouver if pedestrian just walk into road and driver must imediately hit can you predict that?
