Chalking tires for parking enforcement is unreasonable search

MTAS Legal Consultant Elisha Hodge notifies Tennessee municipalities that the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit opined that the practice of marking tires with chalk, in order to monitor how long a vehicle is parked in a parking space for the purpose of enforcing parking restrictions, is an unreasonable search in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
