We established a Highway Code communications working group consisting of a broad range of stakeholders to ensure we develop communications that are fit for purpose and help to raise awareness of the proposed alterations to The Highway Code. The group met for the first time on the 30 June 2021.

As motorcyclists are amongst our priority groups, officials have regular meetings with motorcycle organisations at which education and awareness of The Highway Code, along with wider strategic issues, are discussed.
