Air lines and electrical wiring - secured against snagging, rubbing, wearing.
- 1/2 second

Quote From Page 29 Of The CDL Manual:
The average perception time for an alert driver is 1 3/4 seconds. At 55 mhp this accounts for 142 feet travelled.
Perception time and distance must be memorized.
- 75 in
- 16 ft
- The width of the road.

- Slow down to a safe speed before entering the curve
- Remain in gear during the curve
- Brake hardest during the middle of the curve
- Downshift to the right gear before entering the curve
Quote From Page 25 Of The CDL Manual:
Before entering a curve – Slow down to a safe speed, and downshift to the right gear before entering the curve. This lets you use some power through the curve to help the vehicle be more stable while turning. It also lets you speed up as soon as you are out of the curve.
- Stand up wind and use a fire extinguisher
- Pull into a service station
- Stop in an open area
- Turn the engine off as soon as possible
Quote From Page 46 Of The CDL Manual:
Knowing how to fight fires is important. Fires have been made worse by drivers who do not know what to do. Know how the fire extinguisher works. Study the instructions printed on the extinguisher before you need it. Follow these procedures in case of a fire:
- Pull off the road: The first step is to get the vehicle off the road and stop.
- Park in an open area, away from buildings, trees, brush, other vehicles or anything that might catch fire.
- Do not pull into a service station.
- Notify emergency services of your problem and your location.
- It is located inside of the brake chamber and records any mechanical failures
- In older vehicles, this is a mechanical type of low air pressure warning indicator
- A new technology using GPS which automatically fills the air tanks when a steep decline is ahead
- This is a type of supply pressure gauge which normally hangs from near the visor
Quote From Page 64 Of The CDL Manual:
Another type of warning is the "wig wag." This device drops a mechanical arm into your view when the pressure in the system drops below 60 psi. An automatic wig wag will rise out of your view when the pressure in the system goes above 60 psi. The manual reset type must be placed in the "out of view" position manually. It will not stay in place until the pressure in the system is above 60 psi.
Except in very old commercial vehicles, the Wig-Wag warning device is about extinct and is no longer used. Simply know what it is as there may be a question asked about it on the written exam. It is likely you will never encounter a wig wag warning device in real life.

- Keep people far away and downwind
- Not say anything to anyone as it could cause unnecessary panic
- Ask as many people as you can to come help contain the spill
- Keep people far away and upwind
Quote From Page 102 Of The CDL Manual:
Accidents/Incidents - As a professional driver, your job at the scene of an accident is to:
- Keep people away from the scene.
- Limit the spread of material, only if you can safely do so.
- Communicate the danger of the hazardous materials to emergency response personnel.
- Provide emergency responders with the shipping papers and emergency response information.
Follow this checklist:
- Check to see that your driving partner is OK.
- Keep shipping papers and ERI with you.
- Keep people far away and upwind.
- Warn others of the danger.
- Send for help.
- Follow your employer's instructions.
If safely possible, you should always try to contain a hazardous material spill, but the main concern is human safety. Keep people away from the spill and warn anybody nearby of the danger. Don't try to contain the spill unless you can do it safely. Otherwise, contact and wait for emergency crews to arrive.
