Required by Law signs removed from W&OD Trail Stop signs

What's missing from this sign?
The Stop signs on the W&OD Trail have been the subject of much debate over the years. See our numerous posts about the signs. Below the signs was another sign, "Required by Law." We've wondered about those signs since the Stop signs are not VDOT-approved signs and there is some doubt about their enforceability.

The other day our riding partner noticed that the "Required by Law" signs have been removed. The photo on the right was taken at the Hunter Mill/W&OD Trail interaction. What we would really like to see are Yield signs; they warn cyclists but don't allow police to write tickets for not coming to a complete stop. The Stop sign saga continues.

Dr. Gridlock wrote about this topic again today.
