Perhaps people like you are why Singapore/Malaysia has to resort to caning.

That or get raped in the ass by other dudes in jail, as it apparently happens in jail.

By the way, sucks for the guy who got caned... he won't be able to sit for weeks =/

Not just that but caning like that scars for life. Those people are professionals and know exactly how to cane to give maximal pain and maximal scarring. Can't say I disagree though. Vandalism costs everyone money.

Btw. MOA pics are a bit rare because they clean of the MOA pieces faster than the graffiti by others.

I wouldn't mind seeing pieces on the outsides of trains but I hate seeing tags and scratches on the insides.

Anyway, Rome argubly has the most bombed metro system in the world much worst than NY's.

Roman Metros

The reason why the metro trains in Rome are so overpainted is because they aren't cleaned that often.

Why because can't afford "the buff"? These trains might have over 10 layers of paint

Paris metro is often bombed but they clean it rapidly, so it is rare to see an bombed train.

In 1980's it was worse,


So the new livery of 1992 (actual one) was anti gaffiti (infact it is just stickers that could be remplaced.)

Really don't know. Maybe they are given up the fight on graffiti or just don't find it that immportant to have clean trains. Or simply just because they can't afford it.
You can see in some of your pics that there are several layers of paint. Haven't seen that on other trains than the ones in Rome.

Those poor trains .

Vandals!!!

I decided to take things into my own hands... A couple months ago there were several trains that were standing out in the rail yard. One morning... they were tagged. I decided to take a brush one night, and painted over the tags. I figure if those vandals consider themselves "artists" then nothing would hurt them more (except maybe breaking their hands) then seeing their "art" destroyed.

In the Basque Country we have a serious problem with Euskotren company whose trains and stations are vandalized every week. Near to a hundred of stations, lot of them at lonely places without security monitoring, makes so easy to draw graffities at night.


Train vandalized in Bilbao


Train with graffities at an unknown place

Some photos collected at a basque pro-graffiti blog:





This blogs defines the Bilbao metro as one of the cleanest metro in Europe and sells a 75 min. video about graffities made on Bilbao metro trains.


Instead, in Bilbao metro is impossible to see any graffiti at trains or stations. A cleaning team deletes the graffities during all the day. Some years ago Bilbao metro suffered an average of two graffities every day. Nowadays the average is similar, I supose.
Cleaning and security are priority for Bilbao metro.


Two vandals making a graffiti at a metro train.

Personally I hate graffities made on trains, stations and other public buildings. I understand that some of them are really beauty but I think trains or stations are not place to draw them. Authorities could provide places where young people could paint their graffities.

The problem in Rome, as in any other city, is not graffiti and art, it is BAD graffiti and art. But what ruins a city's aesthetic is most often placards for advertising and other manufacts that are intended to give grey cities a more "artsy" look. Strangely enough (NOT!), I never heard anti-graffiti nazis talk against stupid and often hideous placards.
"But that's because everything must have its place!"
Bull***t. Revolting ads are everywhere.

Exactly the same thing happened to Mile End Station on Boxing Day 2007, by the next day the entire place had been cleaned as if you couldnt even tell it had happened was very impressed as EVERY surface was covered and i mean everything, ticket machines, display signs all columns, walls and parts of the floor, crazy!

IMO that's a pretty strange way to solve a problem...

When I was in Amsterdam, I could not believe how much graffiti there was on the subway. You would have never expected graffiti at all in one of the old, historic capitals of Europe, let alone so much of it.

There's also tons of graffiti in London, especially in the outer parts alongside the walls around train tracks.

The European underclass really seems to like the most disgusting aspects of American ghetto culture. I've seen more graffiti when I was over there than I do here.
