20 January 2022

The plan is to communicate the changes to The Highway Code in two phases:

- A factual awareness raising campaign in early February, alerting road users to the changes as they come into effect.

- A broader behaviour change campaign later in the year, to align with seasonal increases in active travel, to help embed the changes and encourage understanding and uptake of the new guidance.
