One of Britain's most iconic publications is undergoing a digital revolution today as Transport Secretary, Justine Greening, marks the Highway Code's 81st year by launching it as an interactive app for smartphones.

The best-seller's technological transformation will make it even easier - and more fun - for road users to keep up to date with the rules of the road. 

Much of the Highway Code's content has changed considerably since its launch in 1931. For example mirrors were not even mentioned in the first edition and drivers were advised to sound their horn when overtaking.
