When carrying out the review of The Highway Code to improve road safety for cyclists, pedestrians and horse riders, the Department for Transport worked closely with an expert stakeholder group from the outset representing different users of the road, including the AA. All road users had the opportunity to influence the changes to The Highway Code through a 12-week formal consultation process and through dedicated workshops at which the RAC and the Road Haulage Association were represented.
