Chalking Tires Ruled Unconstitutional by 6th District U.S. Court of Appeals

A federal court ruled this week that marking tires to enforce parking rules is unconstitutional in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee.

 

The three judge panel of the appeals court found that marking the tires is tantamount to entering a property without a search warrant.

 

The court went so far as to say marking the tires is more about raising revenue rather than protecting the public against a safety risk.
