'A failure on the part of any road user to observe any rule or follow any advice in the Road Users' Code is in itself not an offence, but any such failure may be taken into account in any proceedings (whether civil or criminal, and including proceedings for an offence under the Road Traffic Ordinance) when deciding if a road user was at fault or not and to what extent, and may also be relied on for negativing any liability under any of these proceedings. Whilst every effort is made to keep the Road Users' Code up-to-date, changes in legislation may render parts of the Code incorrect. In all instances, the prevailing legislation takes precedence.'
