What is Dynamic Engine Braking
Have you noticed signs at the entrances of some cities that read “No Jake Braking” or “No Dynamic Engine Braking” and wondered what they meant? These signs refer to a method of braking that larger trucks use to reduce wear on their regular breaks. The reason for these signs is to reduce the noise this braking method makes, similar to a gun or back-fire noise. Many communities or residential neighborhoods don’t want the loud noise and post these signs. Here is more information on the technical explanation of dynamic engine braking.
