nearest the path of passing vehicles and facing the direction of oncoming traffic. These markers shall have a minimum mounting height of three feet from the bottom
of the panels to the surface of the roadway.
b. A person who is convicted of a violation of this section shall pay a fine of not
more than $100.00 for each violation. In default of the payment of a fine, imprisonment in the county jail for a period
of not more than 90 days may be imposed.
The fine shall be paid over to the board or body charged with the maintenance of the
road or highway upon which the violation occurs.
