THE HIGHWAY CODE (Sung in the form of an Anglican chant) The Mastersingers - 1966 The Highway Code part one, the road user on foot, walking alone Where there is a pavement or adequate footpath, use it On a pavement or footpath Do not walk next to the kerb with your back to the traffic Do not step into the road without first looking Where there is no adequate footpath Walk on the right of the road to face oncoming traffic Do not loiter in the roadway or walk along cycle tracks A marching body on the road should keep on the left-hand side It should have look-outs at suitable distances at the front and rear And at night they should carry lights White at the front of the column and red at the rear Always use subways, footbridges, pedestrian crossings or central refuges when provided Otherwise, cross where you have a clear view of the road both ways Take extra care if your view is limited By stationary vehicles or other obstruc-cions Before you cross, stop at the kerb Look right, look left, and right again Do not cross until the road is clear Then cross at right-angles, keeping a careful lookout all the time When you have stepped off the kerb onto a Zebra Crossing Which must have black and white stripes, studs and ligh-ted beacons You have the right-of-way But allow approaching vehicles ample time to give way Especially if the road is wet or icy When crossing the road at junctions Lookout for vehicles turning the corner Do not cross the road, either at a Zebra Crossing or elsewhere Against a signal to stop by a Police Officer controlling traffic Do not get on or off a bus or tram while it is moving Or when it is not at a recogni-zed stopping place Do not step out suddenly from behind a stationary or slowly moving bus or tram If you want to get on one at a request stop Give a clear signal for it to stop And do not step into the road until it has stop-ped Prepare-red by the Ministry Of Transport And Civil Avia-cion And the Central Office Of Informa-cion (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2006)
