    Driving on private property

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Virginia

    My son recently got his learners permit to drive. Instead of having him drive on the roads and interact with other motorist, I conducted his first several lessons in a empty parking lots. For his 4th time out, I took him to a local shopping mall. It was about 5:30 on Sunday morning. As expected, the lots were pretty much deserted. The mall security guard caught up with us while practicing to park and asked us to leave. He stated the liability don’t allow that. I assume the mall is private property but I didn’t see anything saying we weren’t allowed to drive the lots or park there.
    Do they have the legal right to ask us to leave or were they just blowing a bunch of hot air?

    Of course they do. It's private property. Do you have a sign in your driveway prohibiting others from parking there?
    If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.

    No private messages, I do not reply to them.
