Placards are used to warn you of hazardous materials. Placards are signs put on the outside of a vehicle to identify the “hazard class” of the cargo.
A placarded vehicle must have at least four identical placards. They are put on the front, rear and both sides of the vehicle. Placards must be readable from all four directions. Hazardous material placards are 10 3/4-inches square, in a diamond shape.
Hazardous material placards are not only displayed on vehicles. They can also be found on cargo tanks and other bulk packaging containers.
