As titled highway code question here. Please see linked video for situation in point:
Can someone link me the section in the highway code about not being allowed to pass a police escort? You must not hold up an emergency vehicle on a blue light run, but that’s not to say you can’t overtake them. I regularly filter past/ overtake ambulances, as is legal
It would appear this police car is functioning as a rolling road block, rather than an escort. If this is the case shouldn’t it be clearly carrying a “do not pass” sign in the rear window?
RJ is given a hand signal by the passenger (which he must obey under the highway code) but this doesn’t seem to be afforded to the cyclist. Random van in the middle of the police car and horse guards too which confuses matters further
So unless I’m mistaken, I believe the cyclist is carrying out a legal manoeuvre here, even crossing solid whites as he knows the traffic is moving less than 10mph - a veritable expert
Happy to be mistaken but would like to know the relevant law/guideline that specifically states so
