[Ord. No. 07-017 §1, 1-30-2007]
It shall be unlawful for any person to operate a motor vehicle other than a farm tractor upon any highway, roadway or alleyway unless that person maintains the financial responsibility required by Chapter 303, RSMo. (as amended) or is operating a motor vehicle as to which the owner has maintained financial responsibility.
While operating a motor vehicle, all drivers shall carry proof of the financial responsibility required by Chapter 303, RSMo. (as amended). Proof of financial responsibility shall be displayed for inspection upon demand by any Law Enforcement Officer. Failure of any driver to exhibit proof of financial responsibility to a Law Enforcement Officer shall constitute prima facie evidence that the driver has not maintained financial responsibility and is not operating a motor vehicle as to which the owner has maintained financial responsibility.
A violation of this Section is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) or by imprisonment in the St. Charles County Jail for a term not to exceed one (1) year, or by both fine and imprisonment. A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day a violation occurs or continues. Enforcement of this Section shall be the responsibility of the County Counselor.
