NCCo to seek 'No Jake Brakes' sign on Naamans

From www.delawareonline.com:

New Castle County Council on Tuesday agreed to request that the state Department of Transportation place a sign along Naamans Road reminding truckers that compression-release brakes cannot be used unless the vehicle is equipped with a muffler to dampen the sound. The resolution was offered by Republican Councilman Robert Weiner after residents in his district complained of noise made by commercial vehicles with supplemental compression-release brakes, also called Jake Brake systems. Although state law prohibits use of the brakes without the muffler, DelDOT won't post a sign unless a local governmental body requests it. That fact drew criticism from several council members, including Council President Paul Clark, who said "it is the stupidest thing I've ever seen, and I hope the state comes to its senses to change it." Council voted 10-2 in favor of the request. Council members William Tansey and Karen Venezky voted no. Councilman George Smiley voted present, which is a vote cast without weight.
