TO THE EDITOR.
Sm,—l understood that on the City trams drivers were not supposed to start the car until the conductors rang the bell. On coming from the Leith by the lastcar but one on Wednesday night, the driver started off juat as I got one foot on the step, leaving my friend standing. He saw perfectly well we were not on. I had a very narrow escape of an ugly fall, or a broken limb. I took notice that the same driver scarcely gave passengers time to alight ere he started off again. The company will be having claims for damages if they keep such reckless drivers. Trusting this may be a warning.—l am, etc., Melbourne. Dunedin, May 25.
