The City Manager is authorized and directed to supply police officers with citation tags for the purpose of giving notice to the persons violating the provisions of the traffic code or of other laws or ordinances affecting the use of highways. This notice may be given by delivering the tag to the violator, or by affixing it to the vehicle by means of which the violation occurred. The violator shall within 168 hours after the issuance of the citation tag appear at the municipal building in this city and present the tag to the City Manager or the officer on duty at the Police Department for registration. However, nothing in this section shall be construed to abridge the authority or power of a police officer to arrest any violator and take him into custody.
