Images of Surrey

Editor:

Isn’t it about time Surrey really cracked down on graffiti?

The overpass on 152 Street isn’t even finished and has been badly tagged by large splotches of spray paint by the morons whose vandalism mars the city.

How could those walls be defaced on a major street and nobody see or report it? Each would have taken at least half an hour to complete.

How do these vandals continue to operate with seeming impunity despite websites and Facebook pages showing faces and identifiable tattoos?

And who is responsible for deciding the surface walls of the overpass would be fragmented, making it easy to tag – but almost impossible to repaint and difficult to clean?

Despite the city building new, shiny buildings, who is ensuring the prolific tagging crews won’t just continue to deface things trying to make Surrey look like a Los Angeles ghetto and contribute to the bad image of Surrey?

E. Magee, Surrey
