Highway Code on CD ROM

Fri, 22 Oct 2004 has translated The Highway Code to CD Rom.

It is interactive and every rule narrated and illustrated with animations and video. There is also a section on the Green Cross Code to help youngsters learn how to cross the road safely.

It costs £6.99 plus £1,95 for post and packing from or phone Jem Marketing on 0870 062 5730.

An IAM survey of 27,000 drivers revealed that 74% don’t know when the Highway Code was last updated and don’t know the latest rules of the road.

Only half of drivers claimed to have an up-to-date copy of the Highway Code.

More than a fifth (22.5%) of drivers had not read the Highway Code for over 10 years. (21 drivers surveyed had NEVER read the Highway Code.)

61% of the survey drivers cover more than 10,000 miles per annum.

Nearly 30% of drivers had read the Highway Code to pass their driving test – but then would only read it again for work (15.7%), after a specific incident (11.3%) or when their children were learning to drive (8%). In total there were over 600 separate reasons given why it may be useful to read the Highway Code.
