7.70 Enforcement (7/3/01).
(1) Enforcement Procedure. This chapter shall be enforced according to sec. 66.12 and secs. 345.20 and 345.53 Wisconsin Statutes, as amended from time to time.
(2) Deposit. Any person arrested for a violation of this chapter may make a deposit of money as directed by the arresting officer at the Sheriff’s Department or at the office of the Clerk of Court or by mailing the deposit to such places. The arresting officer or the person receiving the deposit shall comply with Wisconsin Statutes, as amended from time to time. The arresting officer or the person receiving the deposit shall notify the arrested person, orally or in writing, that:
(a) If he fails to appear in court at the time fixed in the citation, he will be deemed to have tendered a plea of no contest and submitted to a forfeiture plus costs not to exceed the amount of the deposit; or
(b) If he fails to appear in court at the time fixed in the citation, and if the court does not accept the deposit as a forfeiture, he will be summoned into court to answer the complaint.
The arresting officer or the person receiving the deposit shall issue that arrested person a receipt therefor as required by sec. 345.26, as amended from time to time.
(c) If a deposit schedule has not been established, the arresting officer shall require the alleged offender to deposit not less than the maximum forfeiture permitted under this chapter.
(3) Stipulation of No Contest. Any person charged with a violation of this chapter except 30.681, 7.346.62(1) and 7.346.63(1) may make a stipulation of no contest pursuant to sec. 345.27, Wis. Stats., which must be received at the office of the Sheriff’s Department or Clerk of Court within 10 days of the date of the alleged violation. Such person shall at the time of entering into the stipulation make the deposit required under sub. (2), if he has not already done so. A person who has mailed or filed a stipulation under this subsection, may, however, appear in court on the appearance date and may be relieved from the stipulation for cause shown as required in sec. 345.37, Wis. Stats. [Code § 7.07, 2018.]
