Graffiti and how to stop it

By Doglover - 4 September 2014 24

Is there anyone in Canberra who can tell me how to remove graffiti from a colourbond fence?  I spent 3yrs saving up for a large fence which backs on to a main street only to have it pristine for 6mths. Then the animals defaced it (they are too awful to be called artists).  As the back fence can now be seen from all roads Im sure that this was the intention, to have their tags seen by a larger audience. As a disabled widow how on earth can I remove this disgrace from my back fence?  Also, if it can be removed is there someone who can do this procedure in town?

To remove this type of tagging could we not perhaps get areas set aside which are regularly whitewashed or have a campaign where items such as the great ‘tardis’ painted on a utility box at Red Hill could be an incentive?  Lets make these folk have places to go to rather than give the city a bad name.  Please, lets not ignore the rules of decency, paint on your own home not others.

What’s Your opinion?

My mate’s neighbour sprinkled horse manure along his fence. Problem solved.

Here’s a bloke using ‘graffiti rid’. Found at your friendly hardware store apparently. He makes it look easy.

Interesting how our fences are covered with the stuff, but not a drop in Queanbeyan.

Give Mark from Sprayjet a call http://www.sprayjetcanberra.com.au/ . Can be difficult to remove depending on the paint used though.

The ACT Government actually has 26 designated grafitti sites around Canberra.

The best way to stop graffiti, right in its footprint, is to stop giving people welfare money. No-one that has to pull his own weight will concern himself with this sort of predatory nonsense.

I’m not sure that old age pensioners are to blame here so why do you want to take away their meagre income?

No, they will be too busy robbing houses and mugging people.

I can see the front page of the Daily Telegraph tomorrow – “Graffiti Thugs and Slouch Hats” – with the obligatory mention of Brothers 4 Life and Islamic State.

People in Queanbeyan know that if they’re caught there will be consequences.

Maybe a literary deficiency?

Tags and cr&ppy pictures are literature now? Seriously, though, there is heaps less graffiti in Queanbeyan than Canberra.

They’re probably stealing the graffiti now.

Yeah that’s probably it.

Or it could be that Queanbeyan is now mostly a pleasant, upper middle class town with a local city council that focuses on core service delivery.

It’s hard to do good graffiti when you are legless after a night at one of Queanbeyan’s main street pubs, even if you haven’t been king hit.
