For purposes of calculating the unsecured appearance 10 bond required under section 805.6 , the scheduled fine shall 11 be five dollars, or if the amount of the fine is greater than 12 five dollars, the unsecured appearance bond shall be the amount 13 of the fine established by the local authority. However, 14 violations charged by a city or county upon simple notice of a 15 fine instead of a uniform citation and complaint required by 16 section 321.236, subsection 1 , paragraph “b” , are not scheduled 17 violations, and this section shall not apply to any offense 18 charged in that manner. For a parking violation under section 19 461A.38 , the scheduled fine is ten dollars. For a parking 20 violation under section 321.362 , the scheduled fine is twenty 21 dollars. 22 Sec. 2. REPEAL. Section 321.362, Code 2017, is repealed. 23 EXPLANATION 24 The inclusion of this explanation does not constitute agreement with 25 the explanation’s substance by the members of the general assembly. 26 Current law prohibits a person from permitting a vehicle to 27 stand unattended without first stopping the engine, or without 28 effectively setting the brake and turning the front wheels to 29 the curb or side of the highway when the vehicle is standing 30 upon any perceptible grade. A violation of this provision is 31 punishable by a scheduled fine of $20. 32 This bill repeals the provision and eliminates its 33 corresponding scheduled fine. 34 -1- LSB 1493SS (2) 87 ns/nh 1/ 1
