I've done that with a whole trailer full of fireworks. Got to do it twice.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Not really, I already drive like a old man so just kept doing that.

That is what these where, I've seen them in the yard before but this is the first time I've had the honor.

I hated those placards. They were always going somewhere that required a ridiculous detour because they weren't allowed on a specific bridge or through a specific tunnel. Usually somewhere in Maryland or Delaware.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I've hauled three loads of 35K plus of ammo when I was at Roehl. No placards required and not HAZMAT. I read the book and the way it was packaged made it not qualify.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

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

Consumer fireworks! From a hazmat load perspective, is there a difference between hauling UN 1.4 and UN 1.3 (professional/display) fireworks?
