At a rest stop, you discover that your hazardous materials shipment is leaking but there is no phone available. What do you do?

A
Explaination
Cleaning up a spill, a huge contamination in particular, is very expensive. Therefore, if you notice a leak, stop as soon as you possibly can and get off the road. Stay with your vehicle because of liability and safety issues and send someone else for help. You will need to send a large amount of vital information, including your location, your direction of travel, the hazard class and ID numbers, your carrier's location, and the cargo's destination. Make sure you write it all down for the person seeking help.
