No ‘Jake brakes’ in D’ville

New signs went up at the Danielsville city limits Monday that announce that “Jake brakes” on large trucks are prohibited inside the city limits. Danielsville approved a new sound ordinance prohibiting the brakes last summer. Police Chief Jonathan Burnette said Monday that officers will issue warnings to violators during the next 30 days and after that fines will be issued. Burnette said previously that he has received a lot of complaints about the noise from these brakes. He said the biggest offenders are log trucks and chicken trucks.
