6-2-15: CITATIONS:
   A.   Issuance:
      1.   Authority: Police officers are hereby authorized to give notice to persons violating provisions of this Title by delivering citation tags to violators or, in cases where vehicles without drivers are parked or stopped in violation of this Title, by affixing such tags to the vehicles by means of which the violation occurred. Such citation tags, among other things, shall bear briefly the charge, shall bear the registration number of the vehicle, and shall direct the violator to present the tag at the police station or other designated place within the time as may be specified thereon.
      2.   Arrest; Custody: Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to abridge the power of a police officer to arrest any violator and take him into custody.
      3.   Furnishing Citations; Numbering: The Chief of Police may require that the police officers use citation tags furnished by the City and that such tags are serially numbered, and may regulate the use and handling of the citation tags. (1988 Code § 15-222)
   B.   Copy Deemed Lawful Compliant: In the event the form of citation provided herein includes information and is sworn to, then such citation, when filed with the Municipal Court, shall be deemed to be lawful complaint for the purpose of prosecution under this Title. (1988 Code § 15-223)
   C.   Attached To Parked Vehicle; Failure To Comply: If a violator of the restrictions on stopping, standing or parking under the traffic laws or ordinances does not appear in response to a traffic citation affixed to such motor vehicle within a period of days as specified on the citation, the Clerk of the Municipal Court may send to the owner of the motor vehicle to which the traffic citation was affixed a letter informing him of the violation and warning him that in the event such letter is disregarded for the specified period of days, a warrant of arrest may be issued. On any occasion where two (2) or more such traffic citations have been affixed on the same motor vehicle and the traffic citations have been disregarded, a warrant of arrest may be issued without sending the letter provided in this subsection. (1988 Code § 15-224)
   D.   Presumption In Reference To Illegal Parking:
      1.   In any prosecution charging a violation of any law or regulation governing the standing or parking of a vehicle, proof that the particular vehicle described in the complaint was parked in violation of any law or regulation, together with proof that the defendant named in the complaint was at the time of the parking the registered owner of the vehicle, shall constitute in evidence a prima facie presumption that the registered owner of the vehicle was the person who parked or placed the vehicle at the point where, and for the time during which, the violation occurred.
      2.   The presumption in subsection D1 of this Section shall apply only when the procedure as prescribed in this Title has been followed. (1988 Code § 15-225)
   E.   Illegal Cancellation: It is unlawful for any person to cancel or solicit the cancellation of any traffic citation in any manner other than as may be authorized by law or ordinance. (1988 Code § 15-226)
