Letter: Truck traffic though down town

Joe Hare writes:
I am not sure trucks can be banned from town, due to the roads being state highways that are regulated by Federal laws.

As engine (jake) brakes are a noise nuisance, especially for us folk that live on Jamestown St and somewhat on Burksville St. I attend Columbia Christian Church and occasionally we will hear a truck engine brake while we are having service. It would be nice if the City Council would enact an Engine Brake law and enforce it.

If such a law was passed and it along with speeding was enforced, I think it would cause some of the through truck traffic to use the Bypass thus relieve some of our downtown traffic congestion, which in turns creates safer street for everyone.
