The Insurance Institute of Cardiff invite you to a webinar on THE HIGHWAY CODE CHANGES 2022 AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR MOTOR INSURANCE
Tuesday 19th July 2020 – 10:00 - 11:00
The webinar will be run via Zoom, a global web-conferencing solution. Zoom is easy to use, a link and joining instructions will be sent to you at the time of booking.
About the session:
On 29 January 2022 some significant alterations were made to the Highway Code, known and trusted for many decades as the ‘Road Users’ Bible’.
This new edition changes many common perceptions as to the rules and etiquette of the road, for instance, priorities at junctions, awareness, spacing and the creation of a ‘hierarchy’ of road users.
Not only are these amendments of fundamental importance to any road user, they will undoubtedly have a bearing on many RTA liability decisions affecting everyone from pedestrians to HGV drivers.
One aspect of concern over the new rules is a perceived lack of publicity and hence a possible knowledge gap on the part of road users. This webinar goes into detail on the provisions of the new Code and how they can be communicated to clients. It also looks at how they are likely to affect different classes of Motor insurance.
The webinar will be of value to everyone using a public road. Specifically it will be of value to insurance personnel dealing with Motor underwriting, claims or client facing in any way.
