Talking What's really goin' on

Man, no time to kick it with y'all. Plus it's too damn cold.
I seen some signs that caught my attention: "No jake braking," "Traveling prohibited in break down lane," "Registry of Motor Vehicles."

For us in CA: Department of Motor Vehicles. by the way...what is jake braking?- pulling up the ebrake/hand brake? I was laughing when I say that "break down lane" sign. We call it the shoulder.

Been here almost a week installing a phone system for Johnstone Supply. Tired as hell. I'd like to visit when it's warmer. Here is my travel below, MS streets and trips with GPS is great !

ever hear a semi truck back off the throttle? jake braking(engine braking) is simply the engine slowing the vehicle down(like downshifting on hill to slow down) the valve train on many diesel powered semis is equiped with a hydraulic braking system ,this can be controlled by the driver , when engaged and in use it is very loud, this braking system is commonly used to descend large hills, the reason there are laws against this is because it is very loud,.this hydraulic engine braking system was invented by a guy named Jacob

ok, cool, now I know that term now. signs out in CA say: "truckers easy on the engine brake." Left and right coast terms are different.
