HIGHWAY CODE
EDM #1111
Tabled 27 March 2017
2016-17 Session
That this House is aware that 25,160 people were killed or seriously injured in the last year in the UK, a six per cent increase on the previous year, while driving, cycling or walking with negotiating a junction being the most hazardous manoeuvre and two thirds of all collisions and three quarters of all cycling accidents occurring during this exercise; notes that at present there are at least 14 rules in the Highway Code about negotiating a junction with many believing there is a need for consolidation and clarity; and calls on the Government to review the Code to examine whether it would be appropriate to introduce a universal duty to give way when turning on a highway, especially at traffic light junctions.
