This is the second question where you have asked about the highway code, have you read it yet?

The Highway code is not in itself law, parts of it are legal requirements. It is generally a guide to road use and often the courts will use contravention of it as an indicator to things like dangerous driving etc.

The Highway Code introduces itself to its readers by saying �The Highway Code is essential reading for everyone�. As far as its legal status is concerned, there are a number of rules in the Code which are preceded by �Must/Must Not�. These refer to legal requirements for which, if you do not obey, you can be prosecuted. Others are �Should/Should not� rules. The Code says that although failure to comply with these rules will not, in itself, cause a person to be prosecuted The HC may be used in evidence in any Court proceedings�to establish liability.
