Changes to the Highway Code

Today, 14th September there have been changes to the Highway Code announced with 33 of the existing rules amended and two new ones added.

Some of the changes include:

  • clearer advice on where to stop in an emergency
  • the importance of not driving in a lane closed by a Red X
  • the use of variable speed limits to manage congestion
  • updated guidance on key factors that contribute to safety-related incidents, including unroadworthy vehicles, tailgating and driving in roadworks

The changes should of course be observed by all drivers, but if you drive professionally, it is vital that you are fully aware of these changes.
