Does the city of Frisco have an ordinance on the use of engine brakes commonly known as jake brakes? We live near Preston and El Dorado and hear them being used frequently. If we do have an ordinance in place does the city plan on posting traffic signs to advise the truckers of this restriction? I believe that Gunter and Celina have this restriction in place.

Sorry for the delay. We've moved into our new location at 7200 Stonebrook Parkway and it took all of my attention.

We currently have no engine brake ordinance. This is the first complaint we have received about the use of engine brakes. We will continue to monitor the need for the ordinance and ask for implementation if necessary.
