16.40.930 Civil Penalties and Penalty Table.

A.  Any civil penalty assessed must be paid in full within the time ordered and under the terms and conditions specified. If either the payment is not made or the required conditions are not met, the penalty will become a suspension, which will take effect immediately upon the deadline given for payment of the civil penalty. The suspension will remain in effect until the penalty is paid in full and/or the conditions required are met.

B.  Unless a specific civil penalty amount is prescribed by any Section of this Chapter, penalties for specific code and administrative violations are found in the Civil Penalty Table in Section 16.40.930. Any violation of a code Section that is not found in the Civil Penalty Table and which is not specifically prescribed by a code Section, but which places an obligation or requirement on a driver or company, will result in a penalty of at least $100 for the 1st violation, $500 for the 2nd violation and $1,000 for the 3rd violation.

C.  The following table outlines the penalties that will be assessed for a violation of the specific code Sections listed:

E.  Offenses are measured by a period of 36 months.  Offenses for the same violation that occur more than 36 months apart from each other are not considered “subsequent” offenses for purposes of them being the “second”, “third”, etc, offense.

F.  Nothing in this Section prohibits the Bureau from suspending or revoking any driver, permit, certification, decal or taxiplate after a third offense for the same violation.
