....Can you imagine if the highway code was so complicated and woolly?
We don't diferentiate between 16 ton lorries and pushbikes on the road, they all have to respect the same rules applied equally .....

Have you read the highway code recently, it is equally ambiguous.
Only the bits marked "must/must not" are legal requirements, the rest go to court to establish liability so are open to interpretation.
You also have categories such as "Road users requiring extra care" and the car driver has to make allowance for them. Then there is "Buses, coaches and trams" where you "give priority to these vehicles when you can do so safely, especially when they signal to pull away from stops"
They sound worse than the ColRegs to me and could open up all sorts of possibilities.
