There are multiple threads concerning this topic. From what I have found it depends on what city ordinances are in place. The only place I have found that anybody has mentioned to have one in the Hampton roads area is Virginia Beach. This is the most notable thread I found.

"Sec. 23-7.1. Providing identification to police officer.
It shall be unlawful and a Class 1 misdemeanor for any person at a public place or place open to the public to refuse to identify himself by name and address at the request of a uniformed police officer or of a properly identified police officer not in uniform, or to provide false information in response to such a request, if the surrounding circumstances are such as to indicate to a reasonable man that the public safety requires such identification.
And that's a 1985 ordinance, confirmed still listed in Municode now. I have wondered a 100 times why it has never been challenged. And other "reasonable man" things have been tossed (such as the noise ordinances for the same reason -- no measurable test for that I think). As this was being discussed in the above thread, it was also (I thought) being added to the code tracker as there were other cities that had similar ordinances (still)."
So from what I have been able to gather IN Virginia Beach, you are required at a minimum to give your name and address. That can still be up for interpretation, because of exactly what drdan01 points out. "if the surrounding circumstances are such as to indicate to a reasonable man that the public safety requires such identification." What is to be considered a "reasonable man"?
As for MY take on it, and I am no lawyer. I see it as, why cause yourself the trouble of ******* off a cop. Now if the cop is asking for too much he wonít get it without RAS. To make things easier for myself and the stop I will give my name and address but thatís it. In all reality though I personally haven't heard a lot of stop and ID stories in the Hampton roads area recently. I know there was a spike in incidents about 2 years ago. From what I can gather though it hasn't been a real problem lately. The most recent story i have found what this month. That stop only happened due to the persistence to a shop owner at a strip mall. The dispatcher even tried to tell the man that open carry was legal but he insisted on having the cops come out. That story can be found here.
I know I am kind of all over the place on this, but I guess the overall answer is that it depends on what locality you are in. In VB they do have a Stop and ID ordinance. This can be up for interpretation. So then it comes down to how comfortable you are with testing the limits of the cops.
I hope that was somewhat helpful. Although I am sure somebody will clarify what I am trying to say in a way that is better understood.
drdan01 if you read this I hope you don't mind that i quoted you!
