Problem: Vandalism < Solution: OWN IT

On average, it takes well over a month or two for the city to come out and address a tag. In less then 5 minutes, using mineral spirits (goof-off), acetone (nail polish remover) or goo gone with paper towels ...plus with the recent wave of warm temps and rain the ground is soft enough to push the pole straight and stomp a brick in for support. It's really that quick and easy.

For those who think it's better to wait, read up on the broken-windows-theory. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_windows_theory

  • todd, is that your work? I mean, the pic on the right?

    Yep that would be me. Either on my block or an adjacent block gets at least one tag a year. Most of which i've been able to erase with roughly the same amount of time and effort.

  • Thumbs up for the do’ers

    Lots of people like to complain about things, and then there are people that DO something about it

    You are a DO’ER
