Third of motorists ‘do not know Highway Code is changing next week’

One in three drivers are unaware major changes to road rules aimed at protecting cyclists and pedestrians come into force next week, a new survey suggests.

Some 33% of motorists polled for the AA said they did not know the Highway Code is being revamped, including 4% who have “no intention” of looking at the details.

The AA accused the government of being “far too silent” on the changes, but the Department for Transport (DfT) insisted it will ensure “all road users are aware”.

It is due to became updated on January 29, pending parliamentary approval to introduce a risk-based hierarchy of road users.
