Road Rules and Trams This page is provided for the convenience of road users who find themselves sharing the road with trams in Bendigo. It is a summary of Victoria's main road rules and driver responsibilities as they apply to sharing the road with trams. Safety Zones and Tram Stops: Slow down when approaching Safety Zones and Tram Stops. There is always the risk of pedestrians getting off a tram and crossing the road without looking. At Tram Stops where there is no Safety Zone between you and the tram, you must stop and give way to all pedestrians walking to and from the kerb. General rules about sharing the road with trams: Do not overtake a stopped tram. o You must stop level with the rear of the tram and wait for the people to get on and off. o You may only overtake a stopped tram: if there are no pedestrians on the road and you are facing a green traffic light, when a uniformed tram employee signals you through, and you must not exceed 10 km/h when passing the stopped tram. You must give way to a tram moving into or across a roundabout. You must not pass on the right of a tram unless tram tracks are at or near the far left side of the road. Passing or overtaking a tram that is not at or near the left side of the road: The driver must not drive past, or overtake a tram if the tram is turning left or is giving a left change of direction signal, unless the driver is turning left and there is no danger of a collision with the tram.
