New advice for electric car drivers

The revised Highway Code, which comes into effect tomorrow, will advise electric car drivers on how to safely use the charging points.

Rule 239 of The Highway Code explains what drivers should do if they have to stop roadside.

This has now been revised to include guidance on using electric vehicle charging points that are by the kerb.

Electric car charging points are dotted all around the country with some also inside street lights.

However, if not used carefully, they can cause a hazard.

Rule 239 will now say: “When using an electric vehicle charge point, you should park close to the charge point and avoid creating a trip hazard for pedestrians from trailing cables.

“Display a warning sign if you can. After using the charge point, you should return charging cables and connectors neatly to minimise the danger to pedestrians and avoid creating an obstacle for other road users.”
