B. In cases when the penalty provided for the violation of an ordinance is a fine in the amount of more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), excluding court costs, or by imprisonment, or by both such fine and imprisonment, all persons charged before such municipal criminal court of record shall be entitled to a trial by jury, unless waived by the defendant.

If a fine exceeding Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00) is imposed for an alcohol-related or drug-related traffic offense, the amount in excess of Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00) shall be used to defray costs for enforcement of laws relating to juvenile access to alcohol, other laws relating to alcohol and other intoxicating substances, and traffic-related offenses involving alcohol or other intoxicating substances.
