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.

"Bob Weiner has done a great job in developing and constantly keeping a watchful eye over the Talley Day County Park and its dog park. I live on Wilson Road directly across the street from the park. I talk to many pet owners who just love the park. Many have told me that it's very relaxing there and they love the fact that their dogs can play together in a secure environment. When Bob walks around the park with his two dogs he stops to say hi to everyone. He certainly deserves credit for a job "well done" and I thank him for that along with so many pet owners. "
