. In the interest
of safety, motor vehicles carrying explosives, ammunition,
or other dangerous
articles (as specified in TM 9-1300-206, Table 6-1) destined for shipment over public highways, whether on-post
or off-post, will display four DOT placards. These placards will be displayed: one on the front, one on the rear,
