Highway Code: Road users requiring extra care . . .


Road users requiring extra care 

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

Rule 206

Drive carefully and slowly 
  • in crowded shopping streets, Home Zones and Quiet Lanes (see Rule 218) or residential areas 
  • driving past bus and tram stops; pedestrians may emerge suddenly into the road 
  • passing parked vehicles, especially ice cream vans; children are more interested in ice cream than traffic and may run into the road unexpectedly 
  • needing to cross a pavement or cycle track; for example, to reach or leave a driveway. Give way to pedestrians and cyclists on the pavement 
  • reversing into a side road; look all around the vehicle and give way to any pedestrians who may be crossing the road 
  • turning at road junctions; give way to pedestrians who are already crossing the road into which you are turning 
  • the pavement is closed due to street repairs and pedestrians are directed to use the road 
  • approaching pedestrians on narrow rural roads without a footway or footpath. Always slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary, giving them plenty of room as you drive past.
