Green light -crossing over tram tracks

Sometimes if there is a green arrow and you're turning left or right and going over tram tracks the trams will stop and sometimes I've noticed that you have to give way to them. Is there a way of knowing when it's completely safe? I sometimes get beeped when I stop to take a look so I assume these guys know.

If you have a green light and you're going straight over tram tracks, then I take it the trams must stop and it is safe.

The driver has priority before tram when:
-tram leaves the loop
-tram leaves the depot
-driver has priority road marked D1 sign, and tram has sign A7.

-on the standard crossroads with traffic lights (not traffic circle) when driver has green light and go straight or turn right

In every other situations trams have priority ;)

Thanks adameczek

I note in the above you mention a right turn. Because I had 2 situations one - a crossing where I made a left turn and had green arrow and I had to give way to the tram and oncoming traffic of course.

Then another where I had a left turn but it wasn't a crossing only a left turn over the tracks and a green arrow - oncoming traffic seems to have a red light and I guess trams the same.

Also I've noticed where a car is stopped and has a green arrow to turn right but wants to go straight on. A car will come from the other lane and basically overtake the stationary car to make the right turn. Is this legal? It happens quite a lot.

If you turn left you must give way tram.
