The People of Watertown started this petition to The people of Watertown, business owners and friends and

Watertown, NY has begun illegally chalking tires. Trespassing upon a privately-owned vehicle parked on a public street to place a chalk mark to begin gathering information to ultimately impose a government sanction is unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment. This has already been ruled on in the 6th Circuit Courts and we, as citizens, are prepared to fight in our Courts as well. 

 Our businesses will be affected, as we cannot kick our patrons out to move thier cars. Employees are not permitted to take a break every 2 hours. This type of discrimination of the working class is erroneous. As citizens and business owners, we have worked hard to bring Watertown back from the brink of destitution and in return we feel we are being unfairly targeted with these new parking citations that will greatly effect our daily lives. We aren't even offered passes. Business in the square has already plummeted and employees of business cannot afford to work because a parking citation takes half thier days take-home pay. This will ruin business downtown if something is not done to protect the working class. Business owners can't even park by thier business. Sign this petition to help favor parking for everyone.
