Totally pointless really. Everyone ignores the Highway Code anyway and does whatever the flip they want regardless of consequences, hence me buying a dashcam. Heat added btw.

Just looking for a copy of this. Pitty there isnt a Morrisons near me.

Whilst I agree to a point, we are actually a pretty conservative bunch of drivers to be honest - far more polite, considerate and well behaved than in most other European countries

I agree, but I've noticed that the highway code is replaced by unofficial rules, made up arbitrarily by drivers with local variations that we are expected to know by mind-reading. As drivers do it, more copy and the highway code goes out of the window.

The book in Morrisons is the AA Highway code book, not the official DSA one. Not that it matters, they are both 2007 and in need of an update.

Can't argue with 1p. Hot deal.

While we diverge....can I agree with this and recall how the authorities actually gave up in Murcia.

They started with a concrete division to mange the 'Spanish way' round the outside. But the roundabout was by an IKEA which is used by a lot of Brits who wouldn't follow the 'Spanish way'. So the concrete has been removed and the 'British way' now prevails!!!

Is this based on your 1 trip to Spain or do you have some survey records of this?

Hot deal for 1p. If you don't want to do a wild goose chase or your Morrison is too small like mine try this for free, well worth a thorough study and apply gov.uk/hig…ode

At least then you can quote the rules to arrogant rule makers, and be confident and guilt free in your shouts for them to "get f**ked".

I know what you mean, as a cyclist, I encounter a lot of unofficial rules. I probably know more than most drivers and I don't even drive.
(Not that i'm having a go at motorists, the ratio of ignorant rule makers is consistent across all forms of transport)

If only this was mandatory reading and testing every 5 years for anyone who used the road..

Yes most of the unofficial rules are made by cyclists ,not stopping at red lights ,riding two abreast etc ,plus the company car drivers who don't own their own vehicles so not bothered about damaging it ,
Would of been a better eu law to get company car drivers to under take 35 hours of driver training every 5 years instead of lgv drivers who have to put up with their appalling driving every single day.

Study up to your theory then never use it again

Please just remember to indicate when leaving roundabouts no matter what exit,drives me insane when waiting to join a busy one and I could have joined if the moron had made their intentions clear. It amazes me how many people think you don't have to indicate on exiting if going straight over as they call it.

Why not buy a hundred for a quid and throw them out of your passenger window?

For under a quid, you could get a stack of these ready to give as gifts (possibly delivered at speed through their open window) to drivers who demonstrate they need it.

Yes, some of the suggestions in it are based on laws, but the Code itself is not law.

I've never been to Spain. Learn to read, or learn to correctly quote people, whichever your problem is.

I will buy one for the first 100 cyclists in London to reply (you pay P&P), as long as you agree to at least read it.

Couldn't agree more. I'm by no means a perfect driver but I do:

Indicate.
Stay within the white lines.
Keep a safe distance from car in front.
Park considerately.

Fully agree with dashcam idea, footage could definitely help with insurance / police involvement.

Maybe not law, but you'd best stick by them or:

Road Traffic Act 1988 Section 38 (7)

A failure on the part of a person to observe a provision of the Highway Code shall not of itself render that person liable to criminal proceedings of any kind but any such failure may in any proceedings (whether civil or criminal, and including proceedings for an offence under the Traffic Acts, the M1Public Passenger Vehicles Act 1981 or sections 18 to 23 of the M2Transport Act 1985) be relied upon by any party to the proceedings as tending to establish or negative any liability which is in question in those proceedings.]

In other words, if anything happens and one party is not abiding by the code, then that party is likely to be found liable for blame.
And much of it is also covered in the Road Traffic Act.

I think you'll find that riding two abreast is allowed, you might want to try reading this.

Then you just post things based on assumption? Sigh

Love to hand these out around where I live too. Nobody signals especially NOT at a roundabout, cyclists ride down the motorway lanes and country lanes are a favourite for riding bikes in the dark till a car has to jam brake not to hit them. Don't believe anyone has ever learned any theory as it is all made up as people go along, worst thing is 90% are probably English and not even learned the basics of the Highway Code at any time. Don't boil my blood but if anyone can get me a box full .....................................

Read this and you'll pass your theory first time

Heat added!!

rule 163... give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would when overtaking a car

Funny you should say "two abreast", as that's one of the unofficial rules. The law says two (at most) abreast is fine, as long as it's not dangerous (eg round a dodgy corner or road is too narrow to accommodate). Though I personally never do it.

My favourite is cyclists must use cycle paths if there is one. It's entirely optional. I use the road if the cycle path has pedestrians, bins, holes or ice that make it a less safe option. But many times my partner and I get beeped and shouted at for it. Cyclists are even within their legal rights to ride right bang in the middle of the road, but the courtesy of keeping to the side to allow easier overtaking seems to be lost, and assumed its a legal given and not a privilege.

A most pointless berating once was for cycling across a zebra crossing, to get to a cycle path on the other side. Which is perfectly legal, and even explicitly stated as legal by Tfl. But the driver assumed because the word "pedestrian crossing" doesn't include cyclists, then it must exclude them.

He's never heard of a toucan (two can) crossing?

Also it's generally impossible to cycle a foot away from the kerb like the fatty mentally retarded motorists expect you to. The camber, debris, pot holes and drain covers make that near impossible.

Partially true; it's only legal provided that there is a cycle path on either side of the crossing. It is not legal to cycle across any form of controlled crossing if there is not a cycle path on the pavement, as obviously that would then result in the ridiculous situation of being legally able to cycle across the crossing but not legally being able to enter or exit the crossing

The Highway Code explicitly states you should not actually be riding when you cross as well, although that's obviously only a suggestion where law does not apply. apply.

Yes, I didn't mean it was always legal, just in my instance, of getting to a cycle path on the other side.

Yeah, the lack of the word "must" means it's an advisory only, and not law. Which thus means no person has any right to tell you to do it.

Lol i love how you talk about europe and the way they drive. Try driving in india, its like death race on steriods, on the side of a mountain, with no barriers.
