Policy Campaign Spotlight – January 2022


A focus on recent campaigning activity by the Logistics UK policy team

Logistics UK has been engaging with the review of the Highway Code since 2020 through consultation responses and meetings with DfT officials. Logistics UK’s calls were heeded while reflecting and balancing the changing use of road space for cyclists and pedestrians.

The government’s review of the Highway Code contained changes suggested by Logistics UK. This includes further amendments to the hierarchy of road users (new rule 1) and new guidance on changing pedestrian and cyclist priorities and passing large vehicles to the left (rules 8, 67 and 163) that emphasised the need for all road users to understand their personal responsibilities, in line with Logistics UK’s response. Logistics UK also asked for stronger guidance regarding bicycle training, which, following direct engagement with officials working on the review, has been added to Annex 1.
