Recent Revisions of the Uniform Vehicle Code 630123

This paper presents significant changes in the Uniform Vehicle Code established by the National Committee in its 1962 session. Changes pertaining to registration of vehicles, operators’ and chauffeurs’ licenses, accident reporting, and rules of the road are outlined.
One of the most important parts of the Code dealing with right of way regulations at intersections where “stop” or “yield” signs exist was revised from the “shifting” rule to the “absolute” rule. Revisions were also made in the equipment section, reflecting technological development in lighting and brake equipment. These modifications are based on findings of the ICC and the Bureau of Public Roads.
