SDOT replaces vandalized no-parking signs on Alki Avenue SW

Earlier this month, someone called to say they had seen a driver going down Alki Avenue SW, stopping and spray-painting multiple no-parking signs. We advised calling 911 if they hadn’t already, and we mentioned it on Twitter, but we neglected to follow up until Ken sent the photo at right this week, asking if the painting had been done by SDOT to signal a change in parking policy. Short answer: No. After the holiday, we asked SDOT spokesperson Sue Romero if and when the city planned to clean or replace the vandalized signs (we counted 10), and today she tells us a crew was out this morning to replace them.

    I’m more worried about the backside of the signs. Wondering if someday a cyclist (me?) is going to clip them and crash, as they’re fairly camouflaged. 

    I sense goofy high school kids were at work with the painting. Dunno for sure. Feels like a pressure wash session would have taken care of it too, but that’d fling the paint into the ocean, so replacement it is.

    Hopefully they catch the perpetrator and make them pay restitution to City, aka taxpayers

Sorry, comment time is over.
