Changes to Highway Code

Changes are being made to the Highway Code from Saturday 29 January, which we think our members need to be aware of; especially if you drive as part of your job.

There are changes in 8 important areas:

  • introducing a new hierarchy of road users
  • crossing the road at junctions, which includes that traffic should give way to pedestrians waiting to cross at road junctions
  • walking, cycling or riding in shared spaces
  • positioning in the road when cycling
  • overtaking when driving or cycling
  • cycling at junctions
  • people cycling, riding horses and driving horse-drawn vehicles on roundabouts
  • parking, charging and leaving vehicles
