Changes to the Highway Code

Old habits die hard – a truism Britain’s road users will do well to remember following the recent roll-out of the revamped Highway Code.

Here are just a few of the changes that have been made to make the road safer for cyclists.

Hierarchy of Road Users:

As of January, there is now a new hierarchy of road users that places road users that are most at risk in the event of a collision at the top of the hierarchy. This means that cyclists as the second most vulnerable road users, behind pedestrians. 

 
 
Road Positioning:
In the new rules, cyclists are advised to use the middle of the lane. This road positioning on quiet roads and in slow-moving traffic, makes the cyclist more visible to other road users as well as restricting the likelihood that other road users may make dangerous overtakes.
Overtaking:

Road users such as cars and lorries must leave at least 2m (6.5 feet) when overtaking people cycling at a low speed. The best option is to wait behind the cyclist and do not overtake if you are unable to make these clearances or if it is unsafe to make the manoeuvre.
