Question:

If you are already carrying 100 pounds of silver cyanide, what precautions must you take if you are given papers at a dock to carry 100 cartons of battery acid?

A Inform someone and do not load the battery acid.
Explaination

Silver cyanide and battery acid are on the list of materials that cannot travel together for safety reasons. (See the "Do Not Load" table in section 9.4 of the Oregon Commercial Driver Manual.) Silver cyanide is a Division 6.1 material (poison). It cannot be loaded with acids because their mixture can release hydrocyanic acid, which is extremely poisonous.
