Highway Code for Pedestrians

There are specific rules for pedestrians when using pavements and roadside paths. As a rule, stay away from the kerbside and face forwards towards oncoming traffic.

As a rule, walkers should always walk on the right hand side of the road. This is in accordance with the UK Highway Code general guidance rules 1 to 6.

Rule 1: Always use roadside pavements or any path at the side of a road if there is one.

Try to avoid walking close to the kerb when your back is facing oncoming traffic from behind you. Make sure to look both ways and check for traffic if you need to step into the road.
