Changes to the Highway Code 2021: not all road users are created equal

Following the Government’s long-awaited consultation to review and update the Highway Code, several updates were implemented on 15 September 2021. You will no doubt have spotted several articles covering the proposed changes and how this will impact pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders and motorists alike.

The changes encompass 33 rule amendments and introduce two new rules. In addition to the new and updated rules, there are three further proposed new rules on the horizon. We believe it is these that will have the greatest impact upon how liability will be considered in our claims. Those rules are discussed in more detail in the article below.
