Motorised access

Byways Open to All Traffic provide a legal opportunity for responsible users of 'road-legal' motorised vehicles to use the countryside, as well as providing easier routes of access for the less physically able.

Some Byways are restricted on a temporary or permanent basis to protect surfaces or biodiversity. See  information on restrictions.

It is an offence to damage the surface of a highway, which can be caused by inappropriate driving, wallowing or unnecessary winching. If seen you should report this to the police (with vehicle descriptions and registrations if possible).

Non-road legal vehicles should not be used on the highway. Vans used to transport such vehicles can be seized by the police.
