Any person who violates any provision of a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania statute regulating stopping, standing or parking is guilty of a summary offense and shall, upon conviction, be sentenced to pay the minimum fine provided by the said statute provision of not less than $25 plus costs, provided that it shall be the duty of the police officer or of the parking enforcement personnel of the City to report to the City all violations of any provisions of this article, indicating in each case the section violated, the license number of the vehicle involved in the violation, the location where the violation took place, and any other facts that might be necessary to secure a clear understanding of the circumstances attending the violation. The police officer or parking enforcement officer or other person making the report shall also attach to or place upon every such vehicle, stating that the vehicle was parked in violation of the applicable ordinance or statute. The notice shall contain instructions to the owner or driver that, if he or she will report to the Parking Office, or another designated location, or deposit the amount of the same fine in an envelope or other device provided in any of the ticket dropoff boxes installed at various locations within the City, that act will save the violator from prosecution and from payment of costs prescribed. Any person who violates the provisions regarding handicapped parking shall be cited and/or, upon conviction, shall be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $250 plus costs.
