Marking tires with chalk to track how long a car has been parked violates the Constitution, an appeals court found
After a woman received 15 parking tickets in three years, she finally had enough. Each time, Alison Taylor's car tires were chalked by a Saginaw, Michigan, parking enforcement officer to keep track of how long she'd been parked. In 2017 Taylor sued the city and the individual parking enforcement officer, arguing they had violated her Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches.
