Marking Tires Declared Unconstitutional in Four States, Not Illinois
Ever had your tires "chalked" as you park somewhere? According to a federal judge, making tires is equal to entering property without a search warrant. Whoa!
A story from Detroit took this situation next level. Alison Taylor had received more than a dozen tickets for parking longer than the two hour limit. Saginaw, Mich marks tires with chalk. Her lawyer said that it violated the Fourth Amendment right, and the judges agreed!
From CBS News:
The purpose of marking tires was to "raise revenue," not to protect the public against a safety risk - 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
This decision by the 6th Circuit now makes it's way into four states: Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.
I wonder if this will reach Illinois anytime soon?
