Highway Code cracked: more than 40 rules changed for cyclists.


Following our high-profile campaign, the Government has agreed to amend the Highway Code to improve cyclists’ safety and to encourage drivers to take more care around vulnerable road users.

In total over 40 rules in the Highway Code have been changed to the benefit of cyclists and will come into effect this summer. Read the announcement issued this morning by the Department for Transport’s here. On hearing the news, CTC Director, Kevin Mayne, said: “I am also delighted for CTC as an organisation, for our staff, members and supporters. This has been nearly two years work and a huge investment of our resources. We thought at several stages during the process we had achieved the outcomes we sought, but now we have an agreement we can work with. I am convinced that at the final stage of the process only CTC could have achieved this outcome with our focus, our knowledge, our ability to bring together the whole cycling movement and the respect we are given by government.

So I think that means you can now sign this to signal your “chapeau” approval.
