A consultation on the Highway code is currently underway and Tarvinonline readers are encouraged to take part and make their views known
The proposals include improving road safety for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. There are 3 main changes which are being proposed through this consultation:
* Introducing a hierarchy of road users which ensures that those road users who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to reduce the danger or threat they may pose to others
* Clarifying existing rules on pedestrian priority on pavements and that drivers and riders should give way to pedestrians crossing or waiting to cross the road
* Establishing guidance on safe passing distances and speeds when overtaking cyclists or horse riders, and ensuring that they have priority at junctions when travelling straight ahead
The deadline for taking part in the consultation is the 27th October 2020
