Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., §§ 324,
325 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch. 321, §§ 201,
202,35 Stat. 1127).
325 of title
18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., were consolidated with changes of phraseology necessary to effect consolidation.
Words “carriage, horse, driver or”, “car, steamboat”, and “or vessel” were omitted as covered by “any carrier or conveyance”.
The punishment provision is derived from said section
324 rather than from section
325 which provided only a fine of not more than $100 and related only to ferrymen.
1994—Pub. L. 103–322substituted “fined under this title” for “fined not more than $100”.
