The Official Highway Code: general rule . . .


The Official Highway Code: general rule

General rule

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

Rule 146

Adapt your driving to the appropriate type and condition of road you are on. In particular
  • do not treat speed limits as a target. It is often not appropriate or safe to drive at the maximum speed limit 
  • take the road and traffic conditions into account. Be prepared for unexpected or difficult situations, for example, the road being blocked beyond a blind bend. Be prepared to adjust your speed as a precaution 
  • where there are junctions, be prepared for road users emerging 
  • in side roads and country lanes look out for unmarked junctions where nobody has priority 
  • be prepared to stop at traffic control systems, road works, pedestrian crossings or traffic lights as necessary 
  • when children, are looking the other way, they may step out into the road without seeing you.
