Farmington, MO adopts pollution control ordinance

It's about half way down the article.News » Farmington adopts pollution control ordinance » Daily Journal Online - Park Hills, MO
:stirpot:


It's 4 cummins trucks & 1 powerstroke truck that caused this, all younger guys in early to mid 20s, running up and down the main drag blowing smoke intentionally.
From what i was told the one that put it over the top and pushed it to city hall was the kid in the single cab powerstroke with a single smoke stack. He apparently thought it would be funny to smoke out a woman in a convertible car with the top down at a stop light. The soot ruined the interior of her car, the clothes she was wearing and left a layer over her body. She sewed him for property damages. Not sure if it has gone to court yet or not.

Me & a buddy saw a blue lifted quad cab cummins (which is 1 of the 4) do the same thing to a woman trying to get her little kid out of the back seat of a car. My buddy gave him a big a$s chewing the next time he saw him out.

I don't agree with giving any average Joe the authority to write in a complaint and then the truck owner gets a ticket in the mail. Should be only the police's authority. Someone could hold a grudge on someone and write up this complaint. Or a guy in a mustang loses a race to a truck (happens alot here) and writes up the smoke complaint to get even. All diesels are gonna put out some soot, That's why the ordinace should let the police be the judge if it's excessive.

i live in farmington and i agree with the ordinance, i am 21 yrs old and i know the people that are doing this. One went to the extent to put dual stacks at the back of the bed cut off at the top of the tailgate just so he can smoke people! And yes i do and believe the ocassional smoking is funny but people go to far

Reminds me of TS last year. Leave the police out of it and go kick their A$$ so they won't do it again. Maybe the local diesel shops should get their heads in the game. The local cops here were after one of ours over here and the problem got resolved. I've got a friend in KS 18yrs old that I had to convince smoking was bad for his health. If the responsible people don't do anything, you can see whats going to happen.

Sucks for you guys in the town that aren't causing problems. I bet it really has the cops watching you pretty close.

They follow me all the time but I quit caring. They never have pulled me over and I have blacked out a couple cops, and that was in Jeff city. I drive from Linn to Sedalia every weekend and never can seem to catch a cop that cares. I can understand that law though. People abuse the smoking ability of these things and if you ever have to drive through it, you can't see a damn thing, it's a safety concern. I never really care who has to drive through it but when everyone does it, your going to smoke out a lawmaker eventually and so it's no wonder they do this. I know Farmington is a big diesel smokeout place anyways so it makes since they would be the first to get a law against it. California, MO might be next as far as I can tell. I sat in a parking lot and you couldn't go 5 min without somebody smoking. I don't see too much smoke west of Sedalia. Warrensburg might have a few smokers. Whats bad is it wouldn't be hard for a cop to catch you. The smoke will stay in the air for a long time and it won't be hard to see look for trucks then trucks with big exhausts lol.

I know at least 3 of the 4....But who is the forth one? Is it a megacab like my color? I know them very well too. And yes it does suck....Everytime that I am in Farmington with my rig I am literally harassed almost every single time I come into town. And to be honest that sucks for me because my truck smokes at idle (it's not a crap load but yeah I am just sayin it hazes...).

The powerstroke guy is a complete dumb A$$ he has had so many tickets he doesn't even have a liscense. And the others are terrible. I used to actually drive around with them and it was a good time. But the last time I drove around with them the white QCSB dodge put his truck in 6th gear with the TNT smarty and lugged it for more than 2 1/2 miles up karsch................... After that I was done with that crowd. I have a CDL and can't lose my job at Ameren... I lose that I lose everything....

I've only seen yours blackout 67 once lol. Other one im talking about is a white quad cab, with a leveling kit. Dude pipes me all the time. Sucks to get harassed when you're not intentionly doing anything wrong. I don't have a problem with any of the guys, friends with a couple of them, just sucks that everyones watching the rest of us now.
