Graffiti could be really cool....if it was on a designated wall. If i saw someone spraying anything public, i would walk up and punch them.

I was just in switzerland and france and shocked at the level of graffiti. Paris: Every train, inside. Switzerland: not the trains but the walls on train ROWs.

In Boston ive seen graffiti only once. A train is pulled from service if there is graffiti on it.

The Muni Metro never has grafitti on the side of the trains like on the posts above but there are those ones they scratch on the windows and the maker ones sometimes but more on buses. BART however i have only seen a few scratched ones, quite surprised. Guess because of the cameras on there and the ocassional BART police pass bys.

They should build electric and barbed wires around railway infrastructure to stop taggers.

And a Singapore-style caning probably won't "hurt" either.

tagging is ugly to me, but they should make trains much more atractive for artwork. they should make a big championship of it, who make's the best.

More graffiti on S-trains

By The Copenhagen Post

More graffiti on the capital's S-trains have resulted in fewer carriages and cramped spaces for commuters, reports BT newspaper.

'Graffiti is a huge and expensive strain on us,' said Per Baktoft, vice president of DSB S-trains, who also added that it was hard to find a concrete reason for the development.

'However, the weather has been good, which has made it easier for the vandals,' he said.

According to national train company DSB's statistics, the number of vandalised trains this year reached 1700 and will cost around 17 million kroner in clean-up costs.

Great pics everyone. I am surprised that they don't get rid of it so quickly in Europe.

When I was on the NY subway, they got rid of the graffiti so quickly that it was not noticeable later on.

Washington, DC doesn't seem to have graffiti on its Metro, maybe on the overpasses but I haven't seen any on trains. Just minor scratches on windows...

No graffittis in the outside or inside of Santiago de Chile's subway trains, although some windows are etched.

Inside the subway stations there's no graffitti either.

(well someone may find a pic of graffiti in our subway but it surely won't last for long as they're removed really quickly).

I must say its not even a minor problem in Singapore. I never seen any train or station in graffiti, just once few lines sprayed on a pylon.


This thing is obviously photoshopped, you can only see the upper four regulations in trains, not that ass

Cos other people support vandalising, i.e: wasting commuters' money. If they just put financial fines, then some vandals with richer parents would feel free to do mess. Everyone is afraid of pain, especially THAT pain.

As far as I know, its not necessary to do graffiti to keep breathing If someone likes arts, then i recommend him to choose one of Singapore's Arts schools. Or graffiti his own room.

And to finish my involvement in this eternal conflict between Singapore laws and European mentality, I must stand in favor of Singapore. It happened to me many times to fall asleep in the train or bus and never got robbed. Neither buses nor trains got graffiti, so my hard-earned fare is not wasted. In any suburb in this city, I can freely go out in the middle of the night, juggle with money and handphone and nothing can happen to me. I know what I'm saying - I was formerly European.
