        (a)  General rule.--The provisions of this title apply upon
     any turnpike or highway under the supervision and control of the
     Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission unless specifically modified by
     rules and regulations promulgated by the commission which shall
     become effective only upon publication in accordance with law. A
     copy of the rules and regulations, so long as they are
     effective, shall be posted at all entrances to the turnpike or
     highway for the inspection of persons using the turnpike or
     highway. This section does not authorize the establishment of a
     maximum speed limit greater than 55 miles per hour, except that
     a 65-miles-per-hour maximum speed limit for all vehicles may be
     established where the commission has posted a 65-miles-per-hour
     speed limit.
        (a.1)  Posting.--No maximum speed limit established under
     subsection (a)(1) or (2) shall be effective unless posted on
     fixed or variable official traffic-control devices erected after
     each interchange on the portion of highway on which the speed
     limit is in effect and wherever else the commission shall
     determine.
        (b)  Penalties.--
            (1)  Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, any
        person violating any of the rules and regulations of the
        Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission for which no penalty has
        otherwise been provided by statute commits a summary offense
        and shall, upon conviction, be sentenced to pay a fine of
        $25.
            (2)  Any person violating any of the rules and
        regulations of the commission prohibiting fare evasion or
        attempted fare evasion commits a summary offense and shall,
        upon conviction, be sentenced to pay a fine according to the
        classification by the commission of the vehicle driven by
        that person at the time of violation as follows:
                (i)  Class 1 through 2: $100.
                (ii)  Class 3 through 6: $500.
                (iii)  Class 7 and higher: $1,000.
            (3)  In addition to the fines imposed under this
        subsection, restitution shall be made to the commission in an
        amount equal to the full fare, for the appropriate vehicle
        class, from the farthest point of entry on the turnpike to
        the actual point of exit.
