I wish they had them here, but living about a quarter mile from Route 30, no chance.
Back when I was in college, I lived on Craig Street in North Oakland. One year, the city was repaving the street, and heavy trucks carrying asphalt constantly were driving up and down. It's about 7:00 a.m., the weather is warm, and I'm sleeping in the couch in my apartment right under an open window, which faces the street. I don't know why in the name of God the moronic piece of **** driving that particular dump truck thought it would be a good idea to use his jake brake smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood (and right across from a school), but the result was BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP fired out his exhaust stacks, which were basically pointed right at my window. I actually shot off the couch and landed on the floor, hurting my side in the process.
