New Highway Code draft: TAKE ACTION- don’t lose your right to stay on the road

The new Highway Code has been laid before Parliament. If not contested by MPs or Lords, it will be approved within 40 days. The new Code will require cyclists to use cycle facilities ‘wherever possible’, irrespective of the consequences for their safety. Similarly cyclists will continue to be recommended to ride around the outside of roundabouts, in the place where conflict is most likely. The rule that they ‘should’ wear a cycle helmet is also retained. Actions every cyclist must take urgently.
