Any person appealing the issuance of an administrative Citation issued under subsection (a) may request a hearing in accordance with the procedure set forth in Section 1120(a).
All hearings on administrative appeals filed under this Section 1119 shall be conducted in accordance with Section 1120.
Administrative fines imposed under this Section 1119 for violations of Article 1100 of Division II of the Transportation Code shall be consistent with Section 310 of Division II of the Transportation Code, and are not subject to adjustment by the Hearing Officer in the context of an administrative hearing conducted under Section 1120.
The penalties and methods of enforcement set forth in this Section are in addition to any other penalties or methods of enforcement authorized by law.
Requirement to Exhaust Administrative Remedies.
