alone. Of course there is no way to stop it but there are ways to prevent, control and cut the cleanup cost in our city. I will
explain some of the methods in use already and others that should be put to use.
The first method, is to pass a law making all stores lock up and restrict the sale of spray paint to any one under 18. Having
stores lock up spray paint prevents graffiti vandals from stealing it, but not all vandals steal the paint. Restricting the sale of
paint to minors is another good idea for prevention. Nearly all graffiti vandals are under the age of 18. With an age
laws. Since then “freeway graffiti” has dropped by 50%, and graffiti in the city has been cut by 20%.
