    Technically, it wasn’t a SPAD as our signals do not display a Danger aspect, rather a Stop aspect.

    Therefore it is a SPAS.

    Any chance of railwaymen and tramwaymen agreeing a common vocabulary? E.g. SPAR: ... at red?

    Or perhaps Signal Missed Excessively Rapidly, Signifying Hazards?

    No, wait, that's SMERSH...

    Well our signals aren’t red either (well, not the ones we’re keeping anyway).

    Are they classed as 'on' when at Stop?
