As with all road users, cyclists need to adhere to the rules set out in the Highway Code regulations 59 to 82. Anyone not doing so is at risk of a penalty, fine or imprisonment. Enforcement is a matter for individual police forces. The Government also promotes road safety, including encouraging safe cycling, through its Think! campaigns. The Government continues to keep road safety and road traffic offences under review to ensure that the current legislative framework is adequate.
