Tough anti-graffiti law for commercial trucks considered

Supervisor John Avalos is looking to rid San Francisco’s streets of those trucks that have become targets of graffiti. As the Examiner reported, The City is taking its war on graffiti to the trucks.

On Tuesday, Avalos requested the city attorney draft legislation “that would cover commercial vehicles by our graffiti enforcement laws.”

“In District 11 a number of vehicles attached to some commercial stores have been sitting out in front of their warehouse space collecting lots and lots of tags,” Avalos said. “And yet there is nothing on the books that requires them to clean up their vehicles and to paint over them causing blight to accumulate in certain areas.”

He went so far as to single out a specific business in his district.

“This legislation, if enacted, would help to ensure we have recourse to make sure they are improving their conditions,” Avalos said.
