Sec. § 1802
Receipts for Fines or Bail


Upon receipt of the payment of any fine or penalty collected under a sentence or judgment of conviction of a violation of any of the provisions of this chapter or any local law, ordinance, order, rule or regulation made by local authorities in relation to traffic or the deposit of bail of a person charged with a violation of any such provision, local law, ordinance, order, rule or regulation, the officer or employee receiving such payment or deposit shall issue a receipt therefor when the payment or deposit is made in cash.
