The hierarchy of road users is one of a number of proposed changes to The Highway Code to improve road safety for cyclists, pedestrians and horse rider. The plan is to communicate the changes in two phases:
- A factual awareness raising campaign in early February, alerting road users to the changes as they come into effect.
- A broader behaviour change campaign later in the year, to align with seasonal increases in active travel, to help embed the changes and encourage understanding and uptake of the new guidance.
We are working with a broad range of stakeholders to ensure we develop communications that are fit for purpose and meet the needs of all road users.
