Highway Code Changes

There are several "significant improvements" in the proposed changes to the Highway Code.

The “statutory instrument”, which includes a number of other changes, was laid before parliament on 1 December, and is subject to a 40-day approval process. Should there be no objections, they will apply as part of the Highway Code from the end of January.

GUIDANCE stating that horses should be passed at a maximum of 10mph and at two metres’ distance are among the “significant” improvements in proposed changes to the Highway Code.
