Highways England has launched a review of the Highway Code to improve road safety on motorways and high-speed roads.
The Highway Code is regularly updated to improve safety for all road users.
Highways England is asking for your views on updated safety information for high-speed dual carriageways and motorways.
Proposed changes include updating information on the use of variable speed limits to manage congestion, the use of red X signs to close lanes, and what to do in the event of a breakdown.

The consultation will run for four weeks and closes at 23:59 on 29 March 2021.

A greater emphasis on following distance and observation skills that extends to the far, intermediate and near distances in front and behind.
in the event of a breakdown on a smart motorway , prey to the lord almighty,maybe he can stop you getting rear ended and killed!
Scrap smart motorways (not smart at all!!) And bring back hard shoulders. A dangerous hard shoulder is safer than no hard shoulder at all!!
