Not enough to pass :-(

Ouch! While you were on a roll there for a few questions, you didn’t pass this time. But I know this test, and I think you’ll pass next time. Really.

1. A person supervising the loading of a tank:
Does not have to be able to move the vehicle.
Must be a licensed firefighter.
Does not need to know about the materials being loaded.
Must stay within 25 feet of the tank.

The loading and unloading of a tank must be watched by a qualified person. They must be alert; have a clear view of the tank; stay within 25 feet of the tank; know the hazards of the materials involved; know the procedures to follow in an emergency; and be authorized and able to move the tank if necessary.

2. The only way to properly check your tire pressure is by:
Using a tire pressure gauge.
Eyeballing the tires.
Pushing on the tires to feel the pressure.
Weighing the tires.

You must examine each tire on a motor vehicle at the beginning of each trip. The only effective way to check tire pressure is by using a tire pressure gauge.

3. When other vehicles have trouble seeing you at dawn or dusk, you can increase your visibility by:
Turning on your four-way flashers.
Honking your horn.
Turning on your headlights.
Turning on your windshield wipers.

At dawn or dusk, and in snowy or rainy conditions, you should turn on your headlights to make it easier for other road users to see your vehicle.

An emergency response telephone number.
The address of the shipper.
The location of fire departments along the planned route.

Headlights should be clean.
Headlights should be turned off during the day.
Headlights should be covered with grease.

Any time a vehicle is carrying hazardous materials.
If there is open space in the truck.
If the amount of hazardous materials in the truck exceeds 200 pounds.
If the hazardous materials create an inhalation hazard.

Placards must be placed on the outside of vehicles carrying hazardous materials. They identify the specific class or classes of materials being carried and warn others of relevant hazards.

7. A person working on a disabled vehicle on the shoulder of a road:
Will likely pay attention to traffic on the road.
May be focused on the repair and not paying attention to roadway traffic.

Should not be assisted.

Be cautious when driving near people who are working on disabled vehicles. The task will likely consume their attention, so they may not be aware of traffic or other hazards on the road.

When the driver locks the wheels and steers.
When the driver uses the brakes as hard as possible without locking the wheels.
When the driver only slightly taps the brakes.
