What Tram Drivers See

Electric trams don't make a lot of noise, but they are still pretty big and fairly easy to see if you look. And you're supposed to look to make sure the next lane is clear before you move to it! It's a wonder how these folks ever got driver's licenses.

From the tram operators' reactions, or lack thereof, you get the idea that they encounter this sort of thing every day. After all, they stayed on their tracks and can't really do anything about drivers who insist on being hit. The only real reactions are when a pedestrian walks into the path of an oncoming tram. -via reddit

Yeah, 'Why didn't he signal his lane change?'. This is obviously not happening in Toronto, where one badly-planned left turn can jam up an entire street for the whole morning, while the Emergency Workers diddle around, taking statements and eventually clearing the bent car. And... it reflects on the TTC driver's record, future raises and promotions, etc.
