How To Pass a Streetcar
Always pass streetcars from the right unless you are going through a one-way road. Stay at a safe distance of 2 meters behind the back doors of the streetcar where passengers get on and off. Although this rule no longer applies at streetcar stops where there is a designated area for streetcar passengers.
Overall, when passing by these areas, always drive at reasonable speeds, and be on the lookout for pedestrians who might make sudden moves.
Slower moving vehicle
Passing a slower moving vehicle by going in the lane of oncoming traffic is quite common on small rural roads but it may not always be safe, therefore it must be done cautiously and carefully. It can become dangerous if we don’t judge distance ahead every well. It can be difficult to judge how much time it will take to accelerate to overtake the vehicle we’re attempting to pass and it can be difficult to judge just how close the oncoming vehicle approaching us.
If you do intend to pass a slow moving vehicle, keep this in mind. An oncoming vehicle does not always appear to be traveling as quickly as it really is. One way to judge if the space is large enough to pull out and pass is if an oncoming vehicle seems to be far enough away that it can barely be seen, then it is generally far enough ahead for you to safely overtake the slow moving vehicle. However, if you take a second look and the vehicle seems to be getting larger in your view, it would be a good sign the oncoming vehicle is traveling quickly. Therefore, passing should wait.
