Streetcars are not new technology so lots of these questions are easily answered by what has happened for the 100 plus years that streetcars have been in use!

Ddot can ensure that it (or DCDPW) has tow trucks ready to remove illegally or disabled cars in way of the streetcar.
What is going to be tough will be the idiots that collide with the streetcar during its first year or two. Seattle had issues with its light rail and SLUT but that has slowly gone away.

I like the idea of tunnels on Columbia Pike - its like San Francisco's MUNI.

Another limitation for the length of DC streetcars is that there are often mid-block driveways and alleys.Routes and stations would have to be planned to ensure that the streetcars could have as long of a station as possible - and allow for growth.
