If a peace officer has reasonable cause to believe that a passenger automobile is equipped with tires in violation of sections 169.721 to 169.727, or of the rules adopted under section 169.722, the officer may require the operator of the passenger automobile to stop and submit the passenger automobile to an inspection. If the inspection discloses that the tires of the passenger automobile are in violation, the officer may issue a citation for the violation, and the defect must be corrected as soon as possible. For purposes of this section, "peace officer" means a state trooper, a county sheriff, a deputy sheriff, and a municipal police officer.
