    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Form D's must be

    • A.

      Numbered consecutively each day beginning at midnight

    • B.

      Numbered sequentially each day beginning at midnight

    • C.

      Numbered beginning with the date and time issued

    Correct Answer
    A. Numbered consecutively each day beginning at midnight
    Explanation
    Form D's must be numbered consecutively each day beginning at midnight. This means that each form should have a unique number that follows the previous form's number in a consecutive order. The numbering should start from the first form of the day and continue throughout the day, resetting at midnight for the next day. This ensures that each form is easily identifiable and helps in maintaining an organized record-keeping system.

    Correct Answer
    B. Complete the delivery portion of the top Form D in the set delivered.

    The correct answer is to complete the delivery portion of the top Form D in the set delivered. This means that when a dispatcher or operator personally delivers one or more Form D's, they only need to complete the delivery portion on the top Form D in the set.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

Instead, they should always provide a physical location reference along with the fractional mile measurement to ensure accurate communication and adherence to speed limits. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    • A.

      True

    Explanation

These marked forms should then be retained for a period of 7 days, during which they should be available for inspection if required. This ensures that the forms are properly documented and can be reviewed if needed within the specified time frame.
