VANDALISM STRIKES WEST DOWNTOWN
As the Haley Street Bridge Replacement Project continues its course, several traffic signs have been damaged (tossed, graffitied, knocked over, and dragged along the pavement).
Neighbors say that club/bar goers who cruise and park throughout West Downtown (to avoid checkpoints/parking lots) have been actively engaging in this type of illegal behavior since their inebriated state severely clouds their judgement. Unfortunately, this nuisance is twofold-disturbing the peace, and vandalism.
Although the police has been informed of this type of behavior, it's difficult to monitor, especially when there are so many bar/club goers on any given weekend to manage. In order to reduce and eradicate such vandalism episodes neighbors must keep alert and report suspicious activity.
