Could This Graffitoed Truck Get a Ticket for Causing Blight? Yes, if DPW Gets Its Way

The DPW wants truck owners to get cited if they allow their rides to get covered in graffiti.

Of course, the City doesn’t have this issue with its own trucks as they get locked up at night.

I don’t know how this would fly in the courts…

    It’s going to have a hard time in the courts, and well it should. Some of these truck owners were heavily tagged, so what they did was hire someone to use spray can art over the rest of the vehicle because the cost of getting the car repainted to look like a new car, cost too much. So they hired emerging artists to make sure they weren’t just a tagged vehicle. In a lot of ways, this is how we want small businesses to operate. I may not like the murals that some businesses choose, but to call it blight is going over board.
