Phoenix calls for measures against graffiti

PHOENIX -- Phoenix wants the Arizona Legislature to take new steps to combat graffiti, including some that could yank driver licenses of juvenile offenders and hit the wallets of their parents.

A city task force wants legislation enacted to mandate full restitution by minors convicted of criminal graffiti damage.

Under that proposal, there would be a restitution liability for parents capped at $10,000 if the minor can't pay.

Also, juvenile offenders could have their driver's license suspended or taken away, and spray paint would need to be locked up in every store in the state.

KPHO-TV reported that the areas of Phoenix hardest hit by graffiti are inside the perimeter of 43rd and 59th avenues and McDowell and Camelback roads.
