Highway Code New Rules

NEW RULES added to the Highway Code, as well as pending updates to London’s Direct Vision Standard regulations, will result in greater demand for vehicle safety devices, says Brigade Electronics.

Updates to the Highway Code, set to be introduced in November 2021, will see the introduction of a ‘hierarchy of road users’. This means those who are most likely to be seriously harmed, i.e. pedestrians and cyclists, will have greater priority over other road users.

Lorry drivers will be ranked at the lowest level and, therefore, will have the greatest responsibility towards other road users and are more likely to burden the blame in the event of an incident, suggests Brigade.
