Default New Highway Code Effective Saturday

So it seems the new code gives cyclists and pedestrians absolute priority, what twat thought that up, looks like I will be killing some prat soon then, as they jump out in front of me and expect me to stop, bloody country has gone stark raving, Rick

Should say “all road users should use a modicum of common sense and each road user is responsible for their own road safety”.
Unfortunately the snowflakes are in charge.

Welcome to Clown World!

The one that gets me in the 1.5m/2m rule for passing cyclists. So if there is a group of them (because they love to travel in packs) where they are riding 2 or 3 abreast, effectively filling the lane, does that make it illegal to pass them now? Because if they are up to the white line then it is impossible to give them the required space.

I think it tells you something about the mentality of people in general when we have a death of a popular character in a TV soap after exercising on a particular indoor machine, and lo and behold this company is now halting production for a while because sales have slumped badly, I say no more, Rick

different country, same problems, as i can see!

i guess cyclists share the same mentality everywhere, riding abreast instead of inline..

i'm glad to give 2m of free space passing the cyclists. 2m from the FIRST on the right (driving on the right side, in italy)!
anyone in that 2 meters shouldn't be there, so..

I don't get it, if pedestrians have absolute priority are they going to remove pedestrian crossings?, they seem redundant. Or is it just when turning into a junction?
