Jake brakes in Penticton have to stop

I know that a Jake brake is not allowed within city limits, yet this trucker uses it each and every time he is in town.

On the morning of Oct. 22 at around 2 a.m. a trucker came down Warren Avenue from Government Street area with his Jake brake on all the way. He stopped at the light at the corner of Warren Avenue and Main Street before he crossed Main Street.

I know that a Jake brake is not allowed within city limits and I also know that using one within the city is absolutely not necessary, yet this trucker uses it each and every time he is in town.

I am assuming he doesn’t work here on a full-time basis because I only hear it about once a month, but it does wake me up each  time. If he doesn’t have to stop at the red light on Main Street and Warren Avenue, then it is on all the way out to Channel Parkway.

If the trucking companies know who this driver might be please speak to him.
