How do I decide the primary class placard on my truck?
Tracey: That would be taken out of the regulations. If you don't just make up a subsidiary risk, so you go to the set of regulations, and it tells you for the shipping name, what the class is, and if there is a subsidiary risk, it is in brackets after the primary class.
Calvin: Okay. So, I can have multiple placards on my truck then?
Tracey: Yes. If it's required. There are certain instances where you do not require a placard for a subsidiary risk. But if I had 400kgs of class 3 and 400kgs of class 8, now I can put two placards on there on all fours sides if I want.
