Some good government policy. Not seen that in a while.
The proposed rule changes will ensure that “those road users who can do the greatest harm have the greatest responsibility to reduce the danger or threat they may pose to other road users”
“The objective of the Hierarchy of Road Users is not to give priority to pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders in every situation, but rather to ensure a more mutually respectful and considerate culture of safe and effective road use that benefits all users”
Love this from the first edition of the highway code.
Remember that all persons—pedestrians, cyclists, persons leading, riding or driving animals and the drivers of motor or horse-drawn vehicles—have the right to use the highway and an obligation to respect the rights of others. Good manners and consideration for others are as desirable and are as much appreciated on the road as elsewhere. Bear in mind the difficulties of others and try not to add to them.
