Why is everyone getting so uptight about this?

The Highway Code is not the Law/a legal document, it's Code of Practice, a recommendation of how you should act as a road user.

Not complying with the Highway Code will not result in you appearing in Court.

However, if you are in Court for a motoring offence (ie accused of breaking the Law) the Prosecution may claim that if you have not followed the Code, that is an indication that you may have broken the Law, but they still have to prove you have broken the law, not just failed to follow the code.

What's that got to do with the highway code , as regards that it won't make any difference to the way I cycle , it only takes one car to kill you , once your dead it makes no odds if the followed the code or not , so I follow my own code , try to stay alive code, a lot of car drivers only have one thing on their mind once abord, how to get from a to b as fast as possible , one second lost is the end of the world , so best hang back and let them get on with it

Same code as mine. As taught by the bloke who did my moped training at 16 years old. When you go out there go out with the assumption that everyone else is trying to kill you.

I NEVER cycle A roads . Way to dangerous, I stick to single track quiet country roads ,and off road routes although this at times brings you into contact with mad locals who think the road is so quiet they can travel at suicidal speeds round blind bends .
Derrick is spot on follow the stay alive code .
