We often view trams as one of the safest and most practical modes of transport, but what happens when the danger is caused by something beyond of the driver's control? A new campaign in Dublin has shone light on how dangerous trams can be when basic rules have not been obeyed. The Luas operator Transdev has released a video promoting the public to #BeTramAware. The campaign focuses on showing cyclists how close they can come to being seriously injured when breaking red lights. Communications Manager at Transdev, Dervla Brophy said: “Whilst Luas can assure customers how safe the system is to travel on, we must also shine a light on the actions of these gambler cyclists. The Cyclist Safety campaign we have put together a series of short videos clips from the CCTV cameras on the front of the trams which record what is happening in front of the Luas driver. “A short cut across tracks is a short cut to death,” emphasises Irish Rail.
Our last video of the week: The race to create hyperloop rallies on after first successful test ride.
