As with all road users, cyclists need to adhere to the rules set out in the Highway Code. The Government continues to keep road safety and road traffic offences under review to ensure that the current legislative framework is adequate. This is why the Cycle Safety Review was announced on 21 September 2017. The Government also promotes road safety, including encouraging safe cycling, through its Think! campaigns and Bikeability training.
