Could you give more detail about the location? Or is it just obvious when you get on the beltline? I have seen some just before the Wade Avenue exit. I only travel the beltline several times a month, so I haven't really kept up with this. But I did see some last Saturday morning.

I plan to follow up until something is done. Apparently the city is much more diligent.

I just called the Raleigh police dispatch number 831-6311. She said if you call that number with the exact location(s), they will send a police officer out to take a picture of it. They will then try to get it removed. I guess the picture helps them determine if/what gangs are involved.

Called the number and the girl said "we'll have someone look into it".

Isn't the beltline covered by the DOT?

Yes, but my understanding is that the police want to track the graffiti. I don't know who they intend to ask to remove it, but I'm going to follow through. I'll be traveling the beltline on Saturday morning. It can't hurt to try more than one approach. This may take a while.

I guess in theory, citizens contact the appropriate authorities and the graffiti is dealt with. In theory.

And if you call that number they will direct you to the DOT. But they do a good job in the City of Raleigh. The problem is getting the DOT moving.
