Is it illegal to wipe off the chalk timestamps on car tires from parking enforcement people?

Seems like if it’s your car you have the right clean your own tire, but if you start cleaning other tires or feeding other meters you might be charged with obstruction of justice or so I’ve heard.
Chalk marks are destruction of property and should be reported to the police. See attached.
While a car is your property, that doesn’t mean under our legal system that you can ;legally wipe off a chalk mark. For instance, you can own a home, but if the City puts a condemned sticker on your home you can not remove it without going through the proper process. Moral of the story: ride a bike.
@Mo Karnage. You are half right. The condemned sticker on your home – was processed and approved and place on your home through the court system. However, the chalk on your car tire was not. It is simply a way for the meter folks to measure time. Feel free to wipe clean. This doesnt mean you wont get a ticket.
I have a court summons for this exact thing tomorrow, did any of you have to appear in court for this, and if so what was the outcome?
