EXPLOSIVE. Any chemical compound or mechanical mixture that is commonly used or intended for the purpose of producing an explosion and which contains any oxidizing and combustive units or other ingredients in any proportions, quantities or packing that an ignition by fire, by friction, by concussion, by percussion or by detonator of any part of the compound or mixture may cause a sudden generation of highly heated gases that the resultant gaseous pressures are capable of producing destructible effects on continuous objects or of destroying life or limb.
FLAMMABLE LIQUID. Any liquid which has a flash point of 70°F, or less, as determined by a Tagliabue or equivalent closed cup test device.
(B) No motor vehicle of any kind, either by itself or furnishing the motive power for any attached vehicle, may transport as cargo or as part of a cargo any flammable liquid or explosive substance over any street or highway in the town other than the through truck routes specified in Chapter 78, Schedule VI, except and only when the vehicle transporting the cargo either has a bona fide pick up of the cargo within the town or a bona fide delivery to make of the cargo within the town. In the event, the vehicle may use, for the shortest distance required to or from such through truck routes, a through street, as listed in Chapter 78, Schedule VI, to the point on any other street in the town which is closest to the point of pick or delivery, as the case may be, and may, in this event, use another street over the shortest distance from the through street to the point of pick or point of delivery, in going from or returning to the through street unless otherwise prohibited. In the event the bona fide pick up or delivery is to be made at a point located on a through truck route, the pick up or delivery much be made by using through truck routes exclusively in going to or returning from the point of pick or delivery.
