(a) The commissioner of transportation, subject to the review and approval of the executive director of emergency management and communications where appropriate, is hereby authorized, subject to the approval of the city council, to determine and designate one-way streets and alleys, and he shall erect and maintain appropriate signs giving notice thereof. Signs indicating the direction of lawful traffic movement shall be placed at every intersection and alley where movement of traffic in the opposite direction is prohibited.
(b) Upon those streets and parts of streets and in those alleys so designated as one-way streets or alleys, vehicular traffic shall move only in the indicated direction when signs indicating the direction of traffic are erected and maintained at intersections and alleys where movement in the opposite direction is prohibited.
(c) It shall be unlawful to operate any motor vehicle on an alley or any other portion of the public way on which through traffic has been prohibited by the posting of an appropriate sign, other than for the purpose of gaining access to or leaving property that is adjacent to such portion of the public way. The operation of a motor vehicle on an alley or any other such appropriately marked portion of the public way located between two streets intersecting with such portion of the public way without parking, or without stopping to load or unload passengers or goods, shall be prima facie evidence of a violation of this subsection. Any person who violates this subsection shall be fined $100.00 for each offense.
