Ask Curbed: How Do I Get Rid Of Tagging?

New, 44 comments

Many Angelenos aren't aware that LA has a graffiti removal request system that helps you alert the city to the latest graffiti/tagging incidents. Hopefully, this site will help a reader in Van Nuys who had this to share: "My townhouse building keeps getting tagged. The management company paints over it when we report it, but it is such a nuisance. This past weekend, I caught someone scribbling on our mailbox and then on a street pole. He had a large knife protruding from his front pocket and I didn't confront him. What's an LA resident to do? People get shot for catching taggers. Call 911? Call the 311 info line to report the tagging?" [Curbed Staff]
