The updates made on 29 January 2022 are an extension to the existing advice and guidance.

The amendments are not expected to pose any major challenges as they simply reinforce the good behaviours that we would expect every road user to adhere to. The changes should lead to improvements in road safety and drivers should already be following the rules of the road.
