Notice to Residents

NOTICE TO RESIDENTS

Due to a complaint near Wireless Road the ability to use engine brakes was investigated.

The Motor Vehicle Act states:

Diesel engine enhanced braking system 181A (1) No person shall use a diesel engine enhanced braking system while operating a vehicle on a highway for which the speed limit is fifty kilometres per hour or less unless the use of the braking system is required by an emergency. (2) Subsection (1) does not apply to fire department or other emergency vehicles. 2000, c. 14, s. 1; 2001, c. 44, s. 4.

The area in question is a 60km/h zone, so it is possible for trucks to use their engine brakes
