Safety Tips for Motorists

Streetcars run along a designated path and come with their own safety considerations. It’s important to remember that they can’t improvise to accommodate common motorist mistakes. Follow these motorist-specific tips to stay safe, and avoid fines and damage to your vehicle:

Do not overtake and or pass any streetcar, even if it isn’t moving.

Park your entire vehicle within the white lines to avoid bumps, scrapes or damage to your mirrors.

Watch for approaching streetcars before turning.

Look before you open your car door to see if a streetcar or cyclist is approaching.

Never stop, idle or park your vehicle in the streetcar’s path or in bike lanes. This applies to all vehicles, including delivery and service vehicles.
