[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Island Park 7-18-1996 by L.L. No. 2-1996. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It shall be unlawful for any person to drive along any street or bridge in the Village of Island Park and solicit towing work. Solicitation of towing work by the operator or the occupant of a tow car while parked on any street or bridge is also prohibited. A tow car operator shall not proceed to the scene of a disabled motor vehicle without having been requested or notified to do so by the owner or his authorized representative or the police. Responding to a call merely upon notification from gas station attendants, taxicab drivers or other unauthorized persons shall be considered a violation of this provision.
An offense against any provision of § 551-1 hereof shall constitute a Class B misdemeanor, which shall be punishable by a fine of not more than $500 or imprisonment for a period not exceeding three months for each such offense, or by both such fine and imprisonment. Each day of continued violation shall constitute a separate additional violation.
In addition to the penalties provided herein, an offense against this chapter may result in the suspension or revocation of the tow car owner's or driver's license.
