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

The amendments simply reinforce the good behaviours that we would expect every road user to adhere to and drivers should already be following the rules of the road. The changes will lead to improvements in road safety as they encourage more mutual respect and consideration for all road users.
