§ 28.2-812. Sealing motor vehicles used in transporting.
Permits shall not be issued to any motor vehicle transporting or relaying shellfish from condemned areas unless the motor vehicle has an enclosed body with doors which can be sealed by an officer. An officer may refuse to issue such a permit if he determines the motor vehicle cannot be properly sealed.
If shellfish from condemned areas are to be transported for depuration or relaying by a motor vehicle, an officer shall seal the body of the motor vehicle before departure. It is unlawful for the seal to be broken by anyone except an officer at the location where the cargo is to be discharged for relaying or depuration. After the seal has been broken, an officer shall supervise the relaying of the shellfish from the motor vehicle to the approved area or the unloading of the motor vehicle at the depuration facility.
