New Driving Laws introduced in October
Posted on 7th October 2022 at 15:21
In addition to the many new driving laws and Highway Code changes introduced earlier in the year, October has seen a raft of new laws being introduced.
The Metropolitan Police have dropped their speed limit threshold by one mile an hour. You could now be prosecuted if you exceed the speed limit by 10 percent pus 2 mph.
Mobile Phone Usage
You cannot now legally use your mobile phone at any time during a journey. If you are caught using your phone you can be fined £200 and have six points added to your licence.
All new cars are required to have a speed limiter. This works by restricting the engine’s power. The driver will still be responsible for staying within the speed limit.
Transporting Goods into Europe
A licence will now be required to carry people or goods for reward or hire. This would include shared cost group minibus trips into the EU or Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Iceland.
