     7  private  road  open  to  public  motor  vehicle  traffic.  Every  person
     8  convicted  of  a  violation  of  this  subdivision  shall:  for  a first
     9  conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not less than  two  hundred
    10  fifty  dollars nor more than four hundred dollars or by imprisonment for
