One reason why I like trams is that the rails designate a part of the street where you absolutely positively *cannot* park your car on pain of having it shoved out of the way. Instead on Wellington streets we expect busses to do ballet - at least the new electric ones are a tad more nible
@PetraOleum I mean it won't *actually* get shoved out of the way—the rail safety regulator would have an absolute field day if a driver did that on purpose—but there would be lots of angry dinging and you'd probably get towed pretty quickly.
@PetraOleum (For context on how hardcore rail safety is, taking a wrong turn at an intersection is commonplace for road vehicles, but in a tram it's cause for a regulatory investigation)
