Episode Summary

Dangerous Cargo
Toxic traffic is everywhere! An average of 800,000 shipments of hazardous materials hit our highways and railways daily. From Wild West wooden crates filled with explosives to HAZMAT containers of nuclear waste, we shadow dangerous cargo. We ride shotgun on a hazardous material shipment that's tracked by satellites; hunt down the hush-hush "ghost fleet"--trucks carrying classified government materials; and board a Con-Air flight moving another kind of nasty stuff--dangerous felons!moreless

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: It's exclusive, corrosive, toxic, infections, radioactive and just plain nasty. No one wants this stuff in their back yard, but to get to anywhere else, it's gotta go down your street. Climb inside the cabs of the hazmat haulers and into the hot zone of a spill, take a seat on the real con-air. From remote controlled big rigs to containers that can really take a beating, now: Dangerous Cargo, on Modern Marvels.
