Provides that the penalty shall be in addition to any bail that the accused is required to deposit for the offense for which the accused has been charged and may not be used for the payment of court costs or fines assessed for the offense. Provides that the clerk of the court shall remit $70 of the penalty assessed to the arresting agency who brings the offender in on the arrest warrant.
