It seems that the love affair some cars seem to have with driving onto tram only sections across the country shows no sign of abating with both Nottingham and Manchester hit during the past few days.
For Nottingham it was the same place on two separate occasions with the Lenton Lane Bridge the location. The first car found its way onto the bridge on Saturday 12th December at around 1530 and was removed within 90 minutes with the second incident being just three days later on Tuesday 15th December. This time the car was not in situ for too long but still long enough to cause delays on the Toton Lane to Hucknall service. These are the second and third times a vehicle has driven onto the tramway here with a previous occurrence in October.
Meanwhile over in Manchester it was the turn of the Manchester Airport line to be affected on Thursday 17th December when a car drove onto the tracks at Barlow Moor Road getting itself well and truly stuck. Services were only able to run from the Airport to Northern Moor whilst the car was freed and removed from the tramway.
No matter what road signs may be in place it would appear that some motorists are determined to find out just what happens when their car pretends to be a tram!
