Auckland looks to rub out graffiti
Tue, 31 Jul 2012 12:28p.m.
Auckland city is set for a clean up with the launch of a new graffiti plan which targets taggers, and aims to get rid of their vandalism within 24 hours.
The plan was launched at the Scorpions Rugby League Club, which sported a new paint job to highlight the problem.
A city-wide hotline line has been set up, and teams will be sent out to remove any graffiti within 24 hours.
In the last year, 340,000 sites were vandalised around Auckland, costing nearly $5 million to clean up.

How about we encourage the artistic displays, and only buff out the vandal tagging?
I think there needs to be more discrepancy between large, colourful peices on public land such as train coridors, versus single colour tagging that is just name writing / marking territory on private property.
Painting over the good stuff will discourage the graffitists from spending time on the work, and so encourage tagging due to the minimal investment lost.

How about age of criminality is lowered so the kid taggers get done for their vandelism.
