(c) It shall be the duty of the owner or operator of every vehicle used for the transportation of dirt, sand, coal, paper, trash, garbage, manure or any other matter or material of any kind or description whatsoever, along or over any of the highways, streets, alleys or other rights-of-way of the City, to make provisions for the securing of such material in or on such vehicle in such manner that such material, or any portion thereof, will not scatter or fall on any of the aforesaid highways, streets, alleys or public rights-of-way.
(d) Any person operating a vehicle from which any litter has fallen or escaped, which could cause an obstruction or damage a vehicle or otherwise endanger travelers on such public property, shall immediately cause the public property to be cleaned of all glass or objects and shall pay any costs therefor.
(e) Any person violating the provisions of this section shall, for a first offense, be deemed guilty of a class 4 misdemeanor. For a second or subsequent conviction within a twelve (12) month period, he shall be deemed guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor. (Ord. No. O-85-113, § 2, 5-28-85)
