After conducting a crash test last Saturday between a car and the new tram, concerns are growing for the safety of the tram.
Experts have highlighted potential dangers of bullying and so called “mobbing”, not from people, but from other cars using the road.
“During the crash test, we could hear other cars passing by and making snide comments as they did,” said one spokeswoman. “Things were being mumbled between cars at the traffic lights just a few metres away. Things like ‘He wishes he was a real car’ and ‘He needs stabiliser tracks to ride on the real roads’.”
Other witnesses heard the word “trammy” being shouted across the road several times.
