New Highway Code comes into force today
New Highway Code provisions come into force today, though they have not been well publicised. Among the key changes is this:
The updated code clarifies that: when people are crossing or waiting to cross at a junction, other traffic should give way; and if people have started crossing and traffic wants to turn into the road, the people crossing have priority and the traffic should give way.
(In the same way that drivers are required to stop at Bull Corner)
