As many R7 riders know, there has been an increase in graffiti along the R7 line. The Sedgwick Station area has also seen an increase. Fortunaely we have 2 public agencies who take graffiti seriously, SEPTA and the City’s Community Life Improvement Program (CLIP) (link).
I reported 7 graffit tags to SEPTA and 7 tags to CLIP Monday morning, April 2 at about 9:00 AM. By 3:00 PM all 14 tags were removed, less than 6 hours after my email notification. Rapid removal is the best deterrent to graffiti. Thank you SEPTA and CLIP.
Here are the 14 tags removed by SEPTA and CLIUP on 4/2/12.

It is important that we all take action against graffiti. If you may see a tag on a mail box, stop sign or wall. Report it to CLIP or SEPTA! The longer a tag remains, the more the taggers get the impression that no one cares and the more our area will be tagged.
There are 3 ways to contact CLIP to get graffit removed:
