|Description||This book is an essential reading for all road-users in England, Scotland and Wales. This updated edition of the only official Highway Code contains the very latest rules of the road. Many of these rules are legal requirements and must be adhered to, in order to avoid penalty - fines, penalty points, disqualification or even prison. All road users need to be aware of the new rules. The rules also include a reference to the legislation that creates the offence.The official Highway Code reflects the most up-to-date legislation that road-users must adhere to, advice on road safety and best practice. The official Highway Code is for life, not just for learners. For over 75 years, the Highway Code has been the official guide to using the roads safely and legally. It has contributed enormously to road safety and reliable road transport.However, every day, on average around nine people are killed and around 80 are seriously injured in road collisions. So it is as important as ever that all road users, including drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians, should update their knowledge of the Highway Code.The new edition (last major revision 1999) includes: 29 more rules than before; a new section on rules for users of powered wheelchairs and powered scooters; a safety code for new drivers, giving advice to help newly qualified drivers get through the first twelve months after passing the driving test, when they are most vulnerable, as safely as possible; new legislation that has been introduced on subjects such as vehicle emissions and smoking in vehicles that are workplaces; new stopping/directing powers that have been given to VOSA officers and Highways Agency Traffic Officers; new road initiatives of which people might not be aware (High occupancy vehicle lanes, Home Zones and Quiet Lanes, Active Traffic Management Schemes); more emphasis has been placed throughout the Code with regard to courtesy, attitude, awareness, and consideration of other road users, particularly those more vulnerable.|
