(C) The village shall impose fines as established in § 72.99 for violations of this section.
(D) As used in this section, AUTHORIZED HOLDER means an individual issued a disability license plate under 625 ILCS 5/3-616, an individual issued a parking decal or device under 625 ILCS 5/11-1301.2 or an individual issued a license plate for veterans with disabilities under 625 ILCS 5/11-609.

§ 72.30 ANNOUNCEMENT OF SNOW EMERGENCY.
Whenever the Village President finds that falling snow, sleet, or freezing rain will create a condition which makes it necessary that the parking of motor vehicles on snow emergency routes be prohibited, or whenever he or she finds on the basis of a firm forecast of snow, sleet, or freezing rain that the weather conditions so forecasted may create a condition making it necessary that such parking be prohibited, he or she is authorized to announce the prohibition, to become effective at a time specified by him or her. After the effective time of the prohibition, no person shall park any vehicle or permit any vehicle to remain parked on a snow emergency route. However, if a fall of snow, sleet, or freezing rain occurs after 11:00 p.m. and prior to 6:00 a.m., and the Village President has not announced prior to 11:00 p.m. that parking on snow emergency routes is to be prohibited after a specified time, a vehicle parked on a snow emergency route may remain so parked until 7:00 a.m. following the fall. The prohibition of parking announced by the Village President under the authority of this section shall remain in effect until he or she announces the termination of the snow emergency, in part or in whole, after which the prohibition of parking authorized by this section shall no longer be in effect.
Penalty, see § 72.99
§ 72.31 TERMINATION OF EMERGENCY.
Whenever the Village President shall find that some or all of the conditions which gave rise to the snow emergency prohibition no longer exist, he or she is authorized to declare the termination of the emergency, in part or in whole, effective immediately on announcement. If the announcement is made other than between 6:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m., it shall be repeated between those hours.

(C) Any police officer is authorized to remove or cause to be removed to the nearest garage or other place of safety any vehicle found upon a highway when:

If the amount of the fine is subsequently changed, the village shall change the sign to indicate the current amount of the fine. It shall not be a defense to a charge under § 72.17(A) that either the sign posted pursuant to § 72.17(A) or the intended accessible parking place does not comply with the technical requirements of 625 ILCS 5/11-301, Department regulations, or local ordinance if a reasonable person would be made aware by the sign or notice on or near the parking place that the place is reserved for a person with disabilities.
