All traffic and parking regulations of a permanent nature shall be enacted as ordinances or as parts of ordinances or as amendments to ordinances of the Borough of Indiana.
A. 
The Mayor shall have the following powers to regulate traffic and parking temporarily and in time of emergency:
(1) 
In the case of fire, flood, storm or other emergency, to establish temporary traffic and/or parking regulations.
(2) 
In the case of emergency or to facilitate public works, or in the conduct of parades, processions or public events, to restrict or prohibit traffic and/or parking in limited areas for periods of not more than 72 hours.
B. 
Such temporary and emergency regulations shall be enforced by the Mayor and the Police Department in the same manner as permanent regulations. Any person who shall operate or park a vehicle or tractor in violation of any such regulation, or who shall move, remove, destroy, injure or deface any sign erected or posted to give notice of any such regulation shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable to the penalty set forth in the law or elsewhere in this chapter for a violation of such nature, and, in case of a violation for which no specific penalty is set forth in the law or elsewhere in this chapter, to a fine of not more than $50 and costs of prosecution, and, in default of payment of such fine and costs, to imprisonment for not more than 10 days.
The Borough Council may, from time to time, designate places upon and along the highways in the Borough where, for a period of not more than 90 days, specific traffic and/or parking regulations, prohibitions and restrictions shall be in force and effect and shall designate such locations by proper signs and markings. Such regulations, prohibitions and restrictions shall be effective just as if they had been specified in this chapter. No person shall operate or park a vehicle or tractor in violation of any such regulation, prohibition or restriction, and no person shall move, remove, destroy or deface any sign or marking erected or made by authority of this section. Any person who shall violate any provision of this section, shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable to the penalty set forth in the law or elsewhere in this chapter for a violation of such nature, and, in case of a violation for which no specific penalty is set forth in the law or elsewhere in this chapter, to a fine of not more than $10 and costs of prosecution, and, in default of payment of such fine and costs, to imprisonment for not more than five days. Provided: the purpose of this section is to allow for the test and experimental determination of the feasibility and desirability of permanent changes in the ordinances of the Borough relative to traffic and parking.
The Police Officers of the Borough are hereby given authority to direct traffic on the highways of the Borough, and at intersections thereof.
