    are there any regulations on spacing of hazardous material trucks traveling on the highway? Specifically in the New Hampshire. How close can someone transporting flammable material be to some one transporting corrosive material

    I don't think there is such a rule, but if you will decide to piss off the cops they can always ticket you for " following to close"
    The driver of a vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the way.(c)

    1 vehicle length for every 10 miles per hour is the general rule. Not sure if there's a hazmat rule.

    Isn't one.

    You can put both in the same trailer.

    And you can park just about everything next to everything at the truck stop.
