New footage has been released of dozens of Canberra drivers and pedestrians narrowly avoiding being hit by the ACT's new light rail.
The footage, released by the ACT government, came ahead of Rail Safety Week, with the near misses captured by dash-cams on board the tram.
Cars were seen narrowly missing the light rail, some by a matter of centimetres, with 23 near misses being caught on video.
Many were pedestrians crossing an intersection at the same time as the light rail, unaware a tram was in front of them, some riding scooters or bikes at the time.
The dramatic video also showed an elderly man tripping and falling off a platform at Alinga Street station and onto the tracks, just as the tram was pulling in to the station.
Road Safety Minister Shane Rattenbury urged for Canberrans to be aware when they're driving or walking around the light rail tracks.
"With each light rail weighing around 40 tonnes, it'd be like getting hit with six elephants at once," Mr Rattenbury said.
"Please take care around our big, red light rail vehicles, Canberra."
The release of the video comes just weeks after a car and a tram collided on Northbourne Avenue near Swinden Street.
No injuries were reported from the July incident.

A pedestrian was hit by a tram during the testing phase of the light rail earlier this year in April, prompting safety warnings from authorities.
Cars have also been seen driving on the light rail tracks, with one seen driving on the tracks near the Gungahlin Place station during the middle of the afternoon peak.
Driving a car or motorcycle into Canberra's light rail will set back drivers $464 and three demerit points.
Motorists can also be fined $200 and three demerit points if they fail to move out of the way of an oncoming tram.
The same penalties also apply to drivers failing to give way to trams.
Rail Safety Week runs from August 12 to 18.
