adr instead of hazmat

Wouldnt it be better to call the tag "adr" instead of "hazmat" - ADR is the European/UN regulatory name for the restrictions of transporting hazardous material on streets. It has meanwhile been signed by a lot more states than just the europeans. Flohoff 11:13, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Good point, yet I think that most countries have implemented the various traffic signs and their meanings for these restrictions at a national level. Mostly it means that the signs refer to national groupings and maximum allowed quantities of classified materials and not directly to the classes 1 to 9 as defined in the ADR agreement. But maybe it should be mentioned on the page. Alv 12:11, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

new tunnel categories since 2010-01-01

New tunnel categories for hazard materials were introduced at 2010-01-01. Categories from A to E exists where A is the standard and means no restrictions. From B to E the driving allowance becomes more strict. This means a hgv with material of category C could drive through a tunnel with the categories C,D or E but not through an B tunnel. Furthermore a tunnel can be categorized in several categories depending on times or weekdays. All tunnels of the TERN (transeuropean road network) will be categorized.

Proposed key: hazmat:tunnel_cat=B-E

Include ADR in key

The key should include "adr" as there may be other classification systems in use around the world. ADR is formally only for "Europe" (UNECE countries). I suggest hazmat:adr_tunnel_cat=A-E . I have also included "A" as a valid value as it may be signed explicitly although this is not expected. --Csmale 19:34, 27 August 2011 (BST)
