Rule Violation: Time

This serves a specific purpose. Most commercial stations over-schedule their hours by one or two songs so there will be sufficient content should the commercial load for the hour be lighter than expected. Newly created Clocks automatically allow for 65 minutes of content. Should a fully scheduled clock-hour have more than 65 minutes of content the Time violation will appear.

M1 will not stop for this one, rather it will be displayed as an alert.
