It is unlawful for any person to drive or operate a non-highway vehicle upon any street, highway, roadway, or any public property in the City; provided, however, that this prohibition shall not apply to any non-highway vehicle used for government or public safety purposes, or to any non-highway vehicle used in connection with any activity or event when the City license or permit issued for such activity or event specifically allows for the use of such vehicles. In addition to any other penalty provided by law, any person who violates this section shall be subject to a fine of not less than $500 nor more than $1,000 for each offense. Each day that a violation continues shall constitute a separate and distinct offense.
The owner of record of the non-highway vehicle used in a violation of this section shall be subject to an administrative penalty of $500 plus any towing and storage fees applicable under Section 9-92-080. Any such motor vehicle shall be subject to seizure and impoundment pursuant to this section.
Whenever a police officer has probable cause to believe that a vehicle is subject to seizure and impoundment pursuant to this section, the police officer shall provide for the towing of the vehicle to a facility controlled by the City or its agents. Before or at the time the vehicle is towed, the police officer shall notify any person identifying themselves as the owner of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation or the person who is found to be in control of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation, if there is such person, of the fact of the seizure and of the vehicle owner's right to request a vehicle impoundment hearing to be conducted under Section 2-14-132 of this Code by serving such person with a copy of the vehicle impoundment seizure report.
Section 2-14-132 shall apply whenever a non-highway vehicle is seized and impounded pursuant to this section.
