The recent Highway Code changes are largely focused on ensuring the safety of cyclists and pedestrians. However, there is a growing concern that drivers are not getting the information they need about the new changes.

Please take at look at this informative guide, Share the Road: Cyclist & Pedestrian Safety Awareness for Drivers:

It covers everything drivers today need to be aware of:

  • New changes to the Highway Code
  • How to be considerate around cyclists, pedestrians, and horse riders
  • What to do if there is an accident

Here are just some of the insights the guide offers:

  • The Highway Code changes follow the Mayor of London’s pledge to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries that occur as a result of road traffic by 2041.
  • The new rules state that you can cross a double white line (usually prohibited) in order to overtake a cyclist if they are going under 10 miles per hour, provided it is safe to do so.
  • It is important to pay particular attention to these rules about overtaking, as overtaking led to a shocking 141 fatalities on British roads in 2020.
