A Tire-d Argument

A common method of enforcement has been ruled unconstitutional.

A chalk mark on your tire suggests
a visit from the meter maid.
Once ticketed, the law requests
a painful levy must be paid.

But recently, in Saginaw,
a scofflaw’s lawyer did research
and fought against that naggin’ law.
The grounds: unreasonable search.

Surprisingly, the lawyer won
by claiming there’d not been a warrant.
Parking tickets were undone,
with chalking tires now ruled abhorrent.

The Fourth Amendment saved the day:
the argument put forth was topnotch.
Saginaw must put away
its chalk – now only good for hopscotch.
