Kansas City Against "Jake Brakes" This Week
Just a quick but interesting note regarding Kansas City regs on the trucking industry . . .
Check out an upcoming ordinance against "jake brakes" . . .
Ordinance #130608 - Amending Section 46-5 of the Noise Control Code by enacting a new subsection (13) prohibiting the use of motor vehicle’s compression release braking systems in designated locations.
A bit of explanation . . . What are "jake brakes" and why are they prohibited in some locations?
Other than that, City Council is mostly interested in more eco-devo giveaways this week.
