Lords debate concerns over lack of publicity for Highway Code changes

Green Party Baroness, Jenny Jones, is putting a motion of regret that will be debated in the Lords Thursday, 27th January. The motion reads:

“to move that this House regrets the draft Revision of the Highway Code because, despite making important changes to protect road users from harm, Her Majesty’s Government has failed sufficiently to educate the public on the changes.”

Jenny is worried that the lack of publicity for the changes will lead to conflicts between drivers who are unaware of the new rules and pedestrians/cyclists who are asserting their rights under the new guidance.
