Video: Cab Driver Ticketed for Honking in Support of Occupy Wall Street in Seattle

| by Michael Allen

SeattleWeekly.com reports that Seattle police officers have started a new policy of ticketing cars that honk in support of the local Occupy Seattle demonstration, which is part of the Occupy Wall Street movement (also known as the 99 Percent Movement).

The police recently announced that they will start ticketing late-night drivers (after 10 p.m.) for honking in support of the Seattle protesters, which led to one cabbie getting a $144 dollar ticket, which he says he will not pay.

In the video below, protesters chanted in support of the cab driver with "cab drivers are 99 percent." Last week, Seattle police arrested protesters who had camped out as part of the protest.
