You should know the outage needed for the liquids you are carrying because:- Some of the heaviest do not have any - Tank baffles are not always legal with outage *** Some liquids expand more than others when they get warm. ***when should the driver of a tanker that has lost its brakes use a truck escape ramp?- Only if the tank is empty *** Always *** - NeverBaffled liquid tanks have bulkheads:- That increase the amount of side to side surges - That separate the liquids from different areas of the tank *** With holes in them that let liquid flow through them ***If an oncoming vehicle drifts into your lane you should:- Use no less that one full turn of steering wheel to avoid it *** move to your right *** - Try to stop rather than turnIn NJ, A tank endorsment is required if your vehicleneeds a class A r B CDL and you want to haul a liquid or liquid gas in a tank or tanks having an individual rated capacity of more than 119 gallons and an aggregate rated capacity of 1000 gallons or moreBefore loading, unloading, or driving a tankerINSPECT THE VEHICLEOn all tank vehicle the most important item to check for isLEAKSDon't carry carry liquids or gases in aLEAKING TANKIt is a crimeTo carry liquid or gasses in a leaking tank.
