Changes to the Highway Code from 29 January 2022

The latest changes to The Highway Code include:

  • Giving people walking across and people cycling going straight ahead priority when turning in and out of junctions

  • Leaving at least 1.5 metres when overtaking people cycling at speeds of up to 30mph, and give them more space when overtaking at higher speeds.

  • Passing people riding a horse or driving a horse-drawn vehicle at speeds under 10 mph and allow at least 2 metres of space

  • Allowing at least 2 metres of space and keep to a low speed when passing a person who is walking in the road

  • Encouraging people driving vehicles to open their doors with the hand furthest from the door, to help them look over their shoulder behind them to see people cycling or walking nearby

  • People cycling may ride in the centre of the road or two abreast for their own safety, whilst allowing others to overtake when it is safe for them to do so
