Ride Responsibly and Share the Road: Tips for Drivers, Cyclists, and Pedestrians

The recent Highway Code changes are largely focused on ensuring the safety of cyclists and pedestrians. However, there’s a growing concern that drivers aren’t getting the information they need about the new changes.

There is an informative guide, Share the Road: Cyclist & Pedestrian Safety Awareness for Drivers: https://www.comparethemarket.com/car-insurance/content/cyclist-pedestrian-safety-awareness-for-drivers/.

It covers everything drivers today need to be aware of:

  • New changes to the Highway Code
  • How to be considerate around cyclists, pedestrians, and horse riders
  • What to do if there’s an accident

Here are just some of the insights the guide offers:

  • The Highway Code changes follow the Mayor of London’s pledge to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries that occur as a result of road traffic by 2041.
  • The new rules state that you can cross a double white line (usually prohibited) in order to overtake a cyclist if they are going under 10 miles per hour, provided it’s safe to do so.
  • It’s important to pay particular attention to these rules about overtaking, as overtaking led to a shocking 141 fatalities on British roads in 2020.
