(A)   Any person, except a qualified person displaying a disabled license plate or proper placard, who parks in any parking space designated with the wheelchair disabled sign commits a civil offense, punishable as prescribed by § 72.99(B) of this chapter.
   (B)   (1)   In addition to the civil penalty imposed pursuant to division (A) above, a vehicle which does not display a disabled license plate or placard, and which is parked in any parking space designated with the wheelchair disabled sign, is subject to being towed.
      (2)   When a vehicle has been towed or removed pursuant to this section, it shall be released to its owner, or person in lawful possession, upon demand; provided that, such person making demand for return pays all reasonable towing and storage charges and that such demand is made during the operating hours of the towing company.
   (C)   It is also a violation of this section for any person to park a motor vehicle so that a portion of such vehicle encroaches into a handicapped parking space in a manner which restricts, or reasonably could restrict, a person confined to a wheelchair from exiting or entering a motor vehicle property parked within such handicapped parking space.
