The Official Highway Code: motorcyclists and cyclists


The Official Highway Code: motorcyclists and cyclists 

Motorcyclists and cyclists 

The Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales and is essential reading for everyone. 

Rule 211

It is often difficult to see motorcyclists and cyclists, especially when they are coming up from behind, coming out of junctions, at roundabouts, overtaking you or filtering through traffic.

Always look out for them before you emerge from a junction; they could be approaching faster than you think. When turning right across a line of slow-moving or stationary traffic, look out for cyclists or motorcyclists on the inside of the traffic you are crossing.

Be especially careful when turning, and when changing direction or lane. Be sure to check mirrors and blind spots carefully.

Making Operator Data/OCRS Public


Making your data public

Last time we surveyed operators, we asked if providing performance information for operators and vehicles might support better compliance across the industry. Over 80% of you agreed that making this information publicly available could encourage greater levels of compliance.

We have put together a short survey that you can use to feed back your views on the data you would find useful. You can also take this opportunity to raise any questions or concerns. It's very simple and will only take a few minutes to fill out. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey – your responses will help us with our future plans.
