Cycles on Public Transport.
Follow the Highway Code.
Don't ride on pavements and other areas for pedestrians (unless signs say you can) and don't go through red traffic lights. Let other road users know what you are doing by signalling.
When you are in shared-use areas with pedestrians remember that they have priority. Use your bell to tell them you are approaching.
Cycle wheels can get stuck in tram rail grooves, which can be dangerous for the cyclist.
This can happen if you cycle too close to the rails or if you cross the rails at too slight an angle.
This image shows how you should cross almost perpendicular to the rails to reduce this risk.
Tell us if you have had any incidents and accidents involving tram rails (or any other incident).
