Edinburgh Trams Being Delayed

A city’s tram network was brought to a standstill after a taxi driver parked her car on tracks and went to get a McDonald’s breakfast.
Angry passengers were kept waiting for ten minutes when the peckish driver stopped to get a morning snack in Edinburgh.

As soon as she realised she had caused a build-up of traffic she quickly moved her vehicle.
But instead of completely rectifying the problem, she parked up on the other side of the road and managed to block a tram travelling in the opposite direction.

A photo of the taxi blocking the tram in front of McDonald’s has been handed to the council, which says it will chase up the matter with the taxi office.

  1. Edinburgh is such a great City, I recently visited and purchased the Bus Tour Tickets ( 6 different City Tours ). From a tourist point of view, trams are a thumbs down, it will ruin most of the old cobbled streets and cause years of disruption to transport. Does the city need them for its commuters ?
