A motor vehicle shall be subject to tow and impoundment by the village, and the owner of record of the vehicle shall be liable to the village for an administrative fee of five hundred dollars ($500.00) in addition to any towing and storage fees if all three (3) of the following conditions are satisfied:
(A) A police officer has probable cause to believe that the driver has violated a vehicle regulation(s) or other law; and
(B) The police officer determines that it is reasonably necessary to remove the motor vehicle from an exposed or public location to avoid a hazard to other members of the public or to avoid obstruction of the normal movement of traffic; and
