- Drivers should use Stab Braking in which they depress the brake, release when the wheels lock up, then depress the brake again repeating as many times as necessary
- The driver's foot remains on the brake pedal in which the anti-lock module then acts as a foot pumping the air brake system
Quote From Page 67 Of The CDL Manual:
For normal or emergency stopping using anti-lock brakes, the driver's foot remains on the brake pedal in which the anti-lock module then acts as a foot pumping the air brake system. On the air-brake system the driver must pump or use stab braking in an emergency. If the anti-lock brake system fails or malfunctions, the driver must resort to stopping the vehicle by using the normal air-brake method. If an emergency arises, the driver should use the controlled or stab braking method. The anti-lock brake system should be serviced as soon as possible.

Cargo tanks remain on the vehicle when you load and unload them. Portable tanks are bulk containers not permanently attached to a vehicle.

The most common cargo tanks are MC406 for liquids and MC331 for gases.
