Highway code changes

The Highway Code, which contains advice and rules for people on Britain’s roads, is expected to be amended next month to introduce a risk-based hierarchy of road users.

For the first time, the law will require those who can do the greatest harm to others to have a higher level of responsibility to reduce the danger.

This means for example that someone driving will have more responsibility to watch out for people cycling, walking or riding a horse, and cyclists will have more responsibility to be aware of pedestrians.

The new hierarchy is as follows:

  1. Pedestrians
  2. Cyclists
  3. Horse riders
  4. Motorcyclists
  5. Cars/taxis
  6. Vans/minibuses
  7. Large passenger vehicles/heavy goods vehicles

I'd assume that the pizza bike riders with L plates are in the first group. Seeing as the antics of one this morning, I wondered what percentage live long enough to pass a driving test.

Or even to deliver a pizza.

I was always taught that those most at risk should be the most careful.

I'd assume pizza bike riders were the assassins.
