Penalty Section of the G.C.0. as it
Pertains to Speeding Violations
As we have discussed, with the recent annexation of the
eastern portion of the township, we gained some higher speed
zones than we ever had before. Specifically, Newark Rd. has
both a 45 and 50 MPH zone and S.R. 16 is, of course, 55 MPH.
Our penalty section will not work well with these higher
zones and needs to be amended.
Section 303.99 of the G.C.0.,the penalty section, states,
When any person is found guilty of a first offense for
a violation of Section 333.03 (Speed Section) upon finding
that he operated a motor vehicle faster than thirty- five
miles an hour in a business district, or faster than fifty
miles an hour in other portions or faster than thirty- five
miles an hour while passing through a school zone during
recess or while children are going to or leaving school
during the opening and closing hours, such person is guilty
of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree." If this ordinance is
left the way it is, a person could be cited for 49 in a 25
zone, 24 MPH over the limit, and he's charged with a minor
misdemeanor. Another person could be cites for 51 in a 50
zone and he' s facing a fourth degree misdemeanor.
This particular section has been a constant source of
confusion among the police officers, as well. For about the
first three years I worked here, we ignored this section
totally and went by the standard (what most other
municipalities use) anything in excess of 20 MPH over the
posted limit and second offenses are a fourth degree
misdemeanors. However, the law director at the time, Rob
Drake, found out we had been doing this and advised Chief
Sorrell to follow the ordinance verbatim, which we did. This
ordinance, itself, is not that confusing. But, when you also
consider the policy of the Court as to whether they must
appear in court or not, it does get confusing trying to keep
track of it all. As a result, the ordinance I drafted and
attached takes into account both of these problems.
