    The dangers of city trams


    Do you know about the dangers of city trams? City trams can be very convenient for getting around, but they can also be very dangerous. There have been many tram-related accidents in cities like Manchester and Edinburgh over recent years, and several experts have suggested that more needs to be done to boost safety standards in areas where pedestrians and trams share space. One of the main problems with tram networks is that pedestrians are able to freely walk across tracks, which makes the chances of collisions occurring high.

    More about the dangers of city trams

    The chances of drivers and pedestrians becoming distracted where trams are involved are significant. Many cyclists have had their wheels stuck in tram lines, and a large number of accidents have resulted from congestion. Trams have a much worse stopping distance than buses and cars, which makes it much harder for their drivers to stop in time when they need to. Nonetheless, there are many great things about trams, such as them generally being more punctual and reliable than buses and the fact they encourage people to leave their cars at home and reduce their carbon footprint.

    We do urge you to file away or keep hold of all evidence related to your claim as it could be the difference between getting compensation and going without.
