Roads used as public paths are highways, being either a footpath or a bridleway1 over which vehicular rights may exist.
The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 includes provisions which substitute all roads used as public paths with a new class of highway known as a restricted byway. This affords a right of way on foot, on horseback or leading a horse, and for vehicles other than mechanically propelled vehicles2.
