Chapter 8. Traffic Code
Sec. 8-09. Removal of vehicles.
(1) Generally. Whenever any traffic officer finds a vehicle standing upon a highway, street or alley in violation of a prohibition, limitation or restriction on stopping, standing or parking, he is authorized to have such vehicle moved to a place of safekeeping or to require the operator in charge thereof to move the vehicle to a place where stopping, standing or parking is not prohibited. Removal of the vehicle upon order of a member of the police department shall not relieve the owner or the operator of the vehicle from any penalty incurred because of such violation.
(2) Penalties. Any person whose motor vehicle is removed pursuant to this section shall pay a forfeiture of not less than $25.00 for the removal, in addition to whatever forfeitures may be imposed for the illegal standing or parking which led to the removal.
