Overnight Idling by Big Rigs
Over the past couple of weeks a few of you have brought up another issue which appears every winter. That is the problem of truckers parking their semi-trucks in residential areas, and leaving them idling all night long.
I am told that on a few occasions not only is the truck left idling but the refrigerating unit on the van is left going all night, too. In a quiet village like ours, the drone of these engines can be quite disturbing for the neighbours.
I'm asking everyone to consider their neighbours, and encourage everyone to promote a good night's sleep.
