The Highway Code: 8 changes to be aware of from 29 January 2022
New rules have been introduced to The Highway Code following the public consultation in 2020 when 20,000 responses were received from the public, businesses and other organisations.
The new rules introduce a hierarchy of road users with those most vulnerable like pedestrians at the top, and those likely to cause the most impact at the bottom, large vehicles HGVs and PSVs.
The changes to The Highway Code that come onto effect from Saturday 29th January 2022, also include rules covering horse riders and cyclists. The changes do not remove the need for everyone to behave responsibly and considerately to other road users and to understand their responsibility for the safety for others.
It’s important that all road users:
- are aware of The Highway Code
- are considerate to other road users
- understand their responsibility for the safety of others
