Graffiti seen as a status symbol



It is important to remove graffiti as soon as possible because if left in place, graffiti adds to the deterioration of neighborhoods. When an individual or neighborhood becomes involved in active and frequent removal of graffiti, it sends a message to offenders that their destructive graffiti and other activities will not be tolerated.
