Post Nitrous Warning?

I could have posted this on the other thread but i wanted people to read this without having to filter thru the other stuff.

My 71 stang will be a partial dailly driver(nice weather and when im bored with the pickup). I will be Running N02 for the track. Now my reall question is that i know it is legal to drive around with the bottle in your car as long as the valve is off.
But in the unlikely(Knocks on wood and crosses fingers) chance i get in a serious accident is there a way the fire dept or police responding will know i have a bottle in there, without haveing to put a sticker on the car?
Im trying to think about the safety of the individuals comeing to my or my fiancee's aid. can you tag your registration or sumthing so that when your plate is read they know(might be a bad idea if i accidently piss off a cop).

Any Suggestions?


-Ron

Although your local police dept. is the place you really want to be asking this question, I'm sure that all they'd say would sound something like, "Just take the bottle off when you're driving around town. Put it back on at the strip. Problem solved."

But I'm not a cop, so I'd have to say. . . . . . . . . "Just take the bottle off around town. Put it back on at the strip."

As a firefighter I really appreciate someone asking this question. For the safety of us and others.
According to the DOT which regulates the transportation of hazardous materials. NO2 which is considered flammable gas, class 2.1 must be placarded when 1000 lbs or more of gross weight is transported.
Now nobody is going to transport that much around in their trunk so you don't need to placard or label it. There should be a flammable gas sticker/label on the cylinder itself, like oxygen and acetylene cylinders have(or should have).
Now would some kind of markings on cars with NO2 in them be nice, yes it would. Just a small sticker in the corner on the rear window or something. Lately we've seen several pics of vehicles where the cylinders have exploded and they are not pretty. Imagine being next to one when it lets go, talk about shrapnel flying.
In the end I would agree with Mooch very highly, take the bottle out around town and put it in when you go to the track. That is the safest way for everyone.
Again thanks very much for thinking about the safety of firefighters, police and EMS workers we do appreciate it.

Let me add this also. If you want more information or maybe get hold of some of the smaller labels contact the Federal Department of Transportation office in your area. They can help you out with all the info you need.

The main thing i was thinking about is when in transit between the track. and also gettin it filled. but then again me and my buddies dont always plan to go to the track sometimes it just happens, and if you have seen some of the stuff we have taken you would laugh.
but back to the origanal topic\question. would there be a way to make it so they would know before they went up close to a vehicle?

I'm glad someone asked this question, I'm considering installing a nitrous system this summer and this was one of my concerns.

I don't think he mentioned ever using it on the street, either.

True.

Now I don't know much about nitrous so from my point of view nitrous would be all the power booster I needed. 2. that building up an engine for power, would get me less MPG, and I don't want
that, I need better MPG if anything.
3. Nobody has ever told me that nitrous is illegal here in Dallas or
anywere else, so how am I to know?
