A motion revising the city's engine brake ordinance was tabled on Monday evening during the St. Marys City Council meeting. Councilman Gary Anderson proposed several new changes to the city's current ordinance on the matter.
Anderson proposed the changes following a trip he took out West in which he noticed numerous unmuffled engine brake use prohibited signs.
Upon conducting further research, Anderson discovered all trucks built since Jan. 1, 1979 are required to have muffling devices on their factory-installed engine brake systems. This could include mufflers or muffling the compression sound by using the turbo charger.
