Highway Code Tips

Rule 289

High Speed Roads

Take special care on motorways and other high-speed dual carriageways:

  • One or more lanes may be closed to traffic and a lower speed limit may apply.
  • Works vehicles that are slow moving or stationary with a large ‘Keep Left’ or ‘Keep Right’ sign on the back are sometimes used to close lanes for repairs, and a flashing light arrow may also be used to make the works vehicle more conspicuous from a distance and give earlier warning to drivers that they need to move over to the next lane.
  • Check mirrors, slow down and change lanes if necessary. Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front (Rule 126).
