Changes to the Highway Code due to go live - RAC comment

With significant changes to the Highway Code due to go live on Saturday 29 January, RAC head of roads policy Nicholas Lyes said:

“These changes to the Highway Code are substantial, so it’s vitally important they are communicated clearly. In theory, they should make our roads safer for cyclists and pedestrians, but unless everyone is aware of them, there’s a risk of angry clashes and, worse still, unnecessary collisions. Nobody wants to be on the right side of the Highway Code changes but in the back of an ambulance because of confusion on the part of a driver or any other road user.

"It’s vitally important drivers now go online to check what’s changed.”
