34:4A-8. Violation of rules, regulations or code; report; complaint by any person; forwarding to operator; investigation; order; service; emergency order to stop operation
a. If as a result of an inspection it is found that there exists any violation of the rules, regulations or codes, adopted under this act, or that there exists a condition in passenger tramway construction, operation or maintenance endangering the safety of the public, an immediate report shall be made to the commissioner for appropriate investigation and order.
b. Any person may make written complaint to the commissioner setting forth any thing or act claimed to be done or omitted to be done by any registered operator which is alleged to be in violation of any rule, regulation or code adopted under this act, or setting forth any condition in passenger tramway construction, operation or maintenance which is alleged to endanger the safety of the public. Thereupon the commissioner shall cause a copy of said complaint to be forwarded to the registered operator complained of, which may be accompanied by an order requiring that the matters complained of be answered in writing within a time to be specified by the commissioner. The commissioner may investigate the matter complained of if it shall appear that there are reasonable grounds therefor.
c. If after investigation the commissioner finds that such a violation of rules, regulations or codes exists, or that there is a condition in passenger tramway construction, operation or maintenance endangering the safety of the public, he shall forthwith issue a written order setting forth his findings, the corrective action to be taken, and fixing a reasonable time for compliance therewith. Such order shall be served upon the operator involved by registered mail, and shall become final, unless the operator shall apply to the commissioner for a hearing in the manner provided in this section.
d. When facts are presented to the commissioner tending to show that an unreasonable hazard exists in the continued operation of a tramway, he may, after such verification of the facts as is practical under the circumstances and consistent with the public safety, issue an emergency order requiring the operator of said tramway forthwith to cease using the same for the transportation of passengers. Such emergency order shall be in writing and notice thereof may be served by any person upon the operator or his agent immediately in control of said tramway by a true and attested copy of such order, the return of such service to be shown by an affidavit on the back thereof. Such emergency order shall be effective for a period not to exceed 48 hours from the time of service. Immediately after the issuance of an emergency order hereunder, the commissioner shall conduct an investigation into the facts of the case as contemplated in subsection c. of this section and shall take such action under subsection c. as may be appropriate.
