Road signs for truckers confuse some Virginia residents

The Virginian Pilot in Hampton Roads, Virginia reports on road signs meant for truckers, but sightly confusing for residents along a local road.

The signs read “No Engine Retarder Brakes”, otherwise known as “Jake Brakes”.

While truckers know the sign refers to truck brakes, some local residents thought the use of the word “retarder” was a misprint.
