Question:

What does liquid surge do to the handling of a tanker?

A It can move the truck in the direction the liquid waves move.
Explaination

Liquid surge results from movement of the liquid in partially filled tanks. This movement can have bad effects on handling. For example, when coming to a stop, the liquid will surge back and forth. When the wave hits the end of the tank, it tends to push the truck in the direction the wave is moving.
