I pull tankers, so it’s simple for me: placards on all four sides of my trailer, when I’m hauling HAZMAT.. but for you flatbedders, shouldn’t this guy have a placard on the back of his trailer? He’s got the sides of his totes placarded, but there’s not a placard on the back end. Thanks in advance, -Pete


Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Yes, sorry, I forgot to include it!

Yes, he should have them on both sides, back and front of trailer or front of truck.

Maybe it fell off and he had not noticed it?

Thank you David and PackRat for your replies; I didn’t want to get in someone’s business without being sure. Turns out he was still in the process of redistributing the totes to make legal weight. He still needs to tarp his load, after which he’ll have placards on all four sides. I was going to offer to make him one if need be, I have a placard kit on board, but he’s good. Thanks again!

I hauled paint in totes like that before. No placards were required. Tanker endorsement was. Is it possible he's hauling paint?

Looks like a placard mount on the mudflap?
