I wouldn't worry about the Trooper and besides, a general parking violation is only a $25.00 ticket if uncontested.
STATE PATROL ‑- POWERS ‑- ON COUNTY ROADS ‑- IN COUNTY PARKS ‑- IN CITIES
Officers of the state patrol have the power and duty to enforce state laws having a uniform application to the general public throughout the state, whether within or without the corporate limits of any county or city, but this power does not authorize them to enforce matters exclusively of local concern, including violations of county and city ordinances.
The legislation designed to create a police force for the purpose of enforcing only state laws concerning the general public and the state at large.* Consequently, officers of the state patrol, in our opinion, are without authority to enforce city ordinances of local origin and nature.
We trust that the foregoing will be of assistance to you.* Feel free to call on us at any time we may be of further assistance.
