(2) "Corrosive liquids." Those acids, alkaline caustic liquids, and other corrosive liquids which when in contact with living tissue, will cause severe damage of such tissue by chemical action or are liable to cause fire when in contact with organic matter or with certain chemicals.
(3) "Flammable liquids." Any liquid having a flash point below one hundred degrees (100°) Fahrenheit and having a vapor pressure not exceeding forty (40) pounds per square inch (absolute) at one hundred degrees (100°) Fahrenheit.
(4) "Combustible liquids." Any liquid having a flash point at or above one hundred degrees (100º) Fahrenheit.
(5) "Liquefied petroleum gas (LP gas)." Any material which is composed predominantly of the following hydrocarbons or mixtures of them; propane, propylene, butane (normal butane or isobutane), and butylenes.
(6) "Hazardous materials." Such materials as flammable solids, corrosive liquids, radioactive materials, oxidizing materials, highly toxic materials, poisonous gases, reactive materials, unstable materials, hyperbolic materials, and pyrophoric materials as defined in Article 9 of the Uniform Fire Code, and any substance or mixture of substances which is an irritant, a strong sensitizer, or which generates pressure through exposure to heat, decomposition, or other means.
(7) "Tank vehicle." Any vehicle, including those with a cargo tank mounted thereon or built as an integral part thereof, used for the transportation of flammable liquids, combustible liquids, LP gas, hazardous chemicals, explosives, or corrosive substances. Tank vehicles include self-propelled vehicles, full trailers, semi-trailers, and railroad cars, with or without motive power and carrying part or all of the load.
(8) "Restricted vehicles." All vehicles or combinations of vehicle and load having a length of more than forty-five feet (45'), or a gross vehicle weight of thirteen thousand (13,000) pounds or greater, or a width of more than eight feet (8') with load, or a height of more than fourteen feet (14') with or without load, are restricted vehicles. Excepted herefrom are recreation vehicles and vehicles assigned "EX" license plates.
(9) "Hazardous cargo vehicles." All vehicles carrying explosives or corrosive substances in excess of five (5) gallons (other than fuels carried in permanently attached tanks and used exclusively for propulsion of the vehicle to which attached).
(10) "Servicing." For purposes of this Chapter, "servicing" shall mean the performance of mechanical repairs or maintenance by a licensed business, located within the proper zoning designation, performed at said location.
