APPENDIX J Truck/Hazmat Placard Identification Sheet and Count Tabulation Sheets J.1 Truck Type, Configuration, and UN/NA Placard Example Sheet The example sheet shown in Figure J.1 contains examples of truck types and configurations, as well as examples of UN/NA placard classes, grouped by placard class along with a tenth cate- gory for other types of placards not included in the nine classes. The sheet can be used by data collectors to help with vehicle or placard identification, but the images shown are not exhaustive of all truck or placard types or configurations. J.2 Truck Count Sheet Template and Example Figure J.2 contains a blank template for counts of trucks. The sheet can accommodate counts for up to seven time periods per roadway direction. Figure J.3 shows an example of the data sheet with count information completed for one time period. J.3 Truck Type and Configuration Count Sheet Template and Example Figure J.4 contains a blank template for counts of trucks by type and configuration. A sepa- rate count sheet should be used for each time period and roadway direction. Figure J.5 shows an example of the data sheet with count information completed for one time period. J.4 UN/NA Hazmat Placard ID Sheet Template and Example Figure J.6 contains a blank template for identification of UN/NA hazmat placards. The sheet can accommodate counts for up to five different time periods, per roadway direction. Figure J.7 shows an example of the data sheet with placard ID information completed for one time period. J.5 Truck Count and UN/NA Hazmat Placard ID Sheet Template and Example Figure J.8 contains a blank template for a count of trucks and identification of UN/NA hazmat placards. The sheet can accommodate counts for up to four different time periods per roadway J-1

Figure J.9 shows an example of the data sheet with count and placard ID information completed for one time period. J.6 Truck Type and Configuration Count and UN/NA Hazmat Placard ID Sheet Template and Example Figure J.10 contains a blank template for a count of trucks by type and configuration and for identification of UN/NA hazmat placards. Spacing provided for truck counts or placard infor- mation should be sufficient to record information for most roadways during a 30-minute or longer count period. A separate count sheet should be used for each time period and roadway direction. Figure J.11 shows an example of the data sheet with count and placard ID informa- tion completed for one time period. J.7 Directional and Intersection Survey Sheet Template Figure J.12 is based on a truck traffic survey form developed by the Colorado State Patrol's Hazardous Materials Transport Safety and Response Team and modified for truck types, con- figurations, and directional information. It contains a blank template for directional and inter- section surveys of trucks by type and configuration (straight trucks [ST], tractor-trailers or straight trucks with a trailer [TT] and tractor with multi-trailer [MT]) and UN/NA hazmat plac- ards for the nine hazmat classes along with a tenth category for other placards (e.g., "Dangerous," "Marine Pollutant," etc.), and there is space for recording more specific placard information such as numbers or words. "Un" is used to identify "unknown" or "uncertain" information for all categories. Multiple sheets may be required for each time period. Abbreviations for truck body types, configurations, and placard groups correspond to categories shown on the identification sheet in Appendix J.1. Figure J.13 shows an example of the data sheet with count and placard ID information completed for a portion of one time period.
