The up to date Highway Code is available for free on any smartphone, laptop or other web-enabled device, including at workplaces and libraries. Users rate it among the most useful pages on GOV.UK, with details of updates, the dates they came into effect, and email alert services for future changes.

To provide a free hard copy to Members who request a copy could potentially cost the taxpayer several thousand pounds depending upon uptake.
