Horn-Honking Protesters Ticketed

Today’s Progress reports that Charlottesville police have begun to issue tickets for “excessive horn-honking” to drivers on West Main that are honking to support living wage protesters at the Marriott. Section 46.2-1060 of the Virginia Code says that it is illegal “to use a horn otherwise than as a reasonable warning,” so it appears that the police are legally correct. Protester Nicholas Graber-Grace (arrested for trespassing at The Omni quite recently) says that “this is a form of speech, people expressing their discontent and desire for justice.”
