Tim Alcock from said: “There is no excuse for any of us drivers not to know any changes and amendments, however minor they are, to the Highway Code.  

“You need to stay up to date with the latest laws on the road to avoid hefty fines and penalty points – if you are caught just holding your phone you could face a £200 fine and six points. 

“One of the most important laws is the introduction of rules H1, H2, and H3 which ensures that pedestrians always have right of way when crossing at junctions and in slow moving traffic, and how drivers of larger vehicles now bear the most responsibility.  

“Implementing these law changes will help to protect the more vulnerable road users, like pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
