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.

  1. seems yet another bylaw (or portion in a existing one) needs to be passed as it would seem common sense isn't that common and some living within a community have to be told (sad state)
