(A)   Any vehicle parked in violation of this chapter shall be issued a citation by any police officer or other person authorized by the Chief of Police. A copy of the citation shall be issued by conspicuously placing it on the windshield of an illegally parked vehicle in a secure manner or in a prominent place thereon. Such posting of the citation shall be deemed prima facie evidence that the violation occurred and that the owner of the vehicle was properly notified of the violation. In the event that the registered owner of the vehicle drives the vehicle away from or in any manner leaves the site of the violation while the issuing officer is preparing the citation, this in fact shall be noted on the citation and shall constitute prima facie evidence that the citation was issued and that an attempt was made to notify the owner of the vehicle of the violation in accordance with this section.
   (B)   The citation shall contain the following information:
      (1)   The date and time the citation was issued;
      (2)   A statement of the specific parking violation for which the citation was issued;
      (3)   A statement of the monetary penalty established, as provided in § 72.99;
      (4)   The registration number and make of vehicle in violation of this chapter;
      (5)   The name or an identifying number of the person issuing the citation;
      (6)   A statement that the notice represents a determination that a parking violation has been committed by the owner of the vehicle and that the determination shall be final unless the person requests a hearing before the Parking Enforcement Hearing Board within seven (7) days;
      (7)   The procedure for the person to follow in order to respond to the citation or to contest the citation; and
      (8)   A statement that a parking violation may result in impoundment of the vehicle for which the owner may be liable for a fine and towing and storage charges or fees.
   (C)   If the owner of a vehicle cited for a parking violation has not responded to the notice within seven (7) days, a second notice shall be sent to the last known address of the registered owner by certified mail. Such notice shall state that if the owner docs not respond to the notice by cither paying the fine or by requesting in writing a hearing within seven (7) days of receipt of the notice, the owner shall be deemed to have waived his or her right to a hearing and the determination that a violation was committed shall be considered final.
