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.

The indicated substance should not be transported.
The indicated substance should be transported by air.
The indicated substance should only be transported at night.
The indicated substance should be accompanied by a security guard.

The third column of the Hazardous Materials Table lists items' hazard classes and divisions. Drivers should never transport a material that is marked by the word "Forbidden."
