The Highway Code is a book published in the United Kingdom by the Department for Transport. First published in 1931, it has been revised frequently since. It contains advice on legislation and best practice for road users, including pedestrians, cyclists, and horse riders, as well as drivers or riders of motorised vehicles. This advice is split into sections and numbered rules. The rules are not legally binding in themselves, but either reflect legislation that is (typically indicated by must or must not in the wording) or can taken into account by court looking to determine fault or other driving offences.
The current version is available online on .gov.uk
Other versions have been published for Nothern Ireland and Jersey.
