It is a requirement for all party buses to have a way bill. It is a code enforcement violation to have an incomplete waybill. Department of Transportation will seize any incomplete waybill as evidence for misdemeanor criminal charges. • TCP permits require prior arrangement for transportation. They cannot act like a taxi. This is another easy violation to catch and cite. • Standard vehicle code violations also apply, such as proper commercial license plates and commercial driver’s licenses.
