POLICE have issued a plea to Hunter drivers to take care around light rail after a spate of incidents, including a driver caught driving towards an oncoming tram.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Command and Newcastle police have been patrolling the 2.7-kilometre system since it began operating in earnest on February 18.
On Thursday they released footage of several drivers disobeying road rules around the new system.
The most egregious shows a ute turning off Hunter Street at Worth Place and into the path of an oncoming tram. The driver swaps back to the Wickham-bound train line and continues slowly through the Honeysuckle station before pulling over on Steel Street.
Several others show drivers rolling through red lights in Newcastle East and on Hannell Street.
