New Highway Code changes improve the safety of people walking, cycling and riding horses

Posted on in Business News, Cycles News, Creative News, Political News

Rules cycle pathfor all types of road users have been updated in The Highway Code to improve the safety of people walking, cycling and riding horses.

The changes follow a public consultation on a review of The Highway Code to improve road safety for people walking, cycling and riding horses. It ran from July to October 2020, and received more than 20,000 responses from the public, businesses and other organisations. Most people who responded were in favour of all the changes.

Here are 8 of the changes that you need to know about:

1. Hierarchy of road users
2. People crossing the road at junctions
3. Walking, cycling or riding in shared spaces
4. Positioning in the road when cycling
5. Overtaking when driving or cycling
6. People cycling at junctions
7. People cycling, riding a horse and driving horse-drawn vehicles on roundabouts

The code recommends the ‘Dutch Reach' for drivers leaving their vehicles, something Cycling UK and other cycling organisations have been promoting for serveral years.

The changes were made to The Highway Code on Saturday 29 January 2022.
