Why does the Highway Code need changing?

Whether driving, cycling or walking, negotiating a junction is the most hazardous manoeuvre you make on the road. Two-thirds of all collisions take place at junctions. This increases to three-quarters of all cycling collisions.

Right now, the Highway Code rules on junctions are confusing and create unnecessary risks for people using them. We’re calling for a universal rule that when turning at a junction, you always give way to people going ahead or crossing that junction, including people cycling and walking. This would make them simpler, safer and more efficient for everyone.

The new rule would consolidate and clarify existing rules. This type of universal rule has already been shown to be effective at increasing road safety for people walking and cycling in other countries.

Please support Turning the Corner!
