Jake Brakes Prohibited in Wyalusing, PA
Noise pollution is a significant problem, especially in gasland areas wherever that may be. This week Wyalusing Borough voted to prohibit the use of jake brakes which make a loud machine gun type of sound when applied. With all the gas drilling vehicles everywhere in Bradford County, this will perhaps make carrying on a conversation on a street corner or sleeping at night a little easier. However, the slow and persistent destruction of the environment and the dangers to public health will continue despite tiny measures such as this.
