We should rather talk bridges now instead of worrying about graffiti. The graffiti on this bridge doesn't even count.

Sometimes it makes you want to bring your own can of paint to cover it all up. Why not? I sometimes bring an assortment of things with me anyways, brush clippers, ladder, measuring tape, chalk, etc.

I worked with someone one summer who tagged things. Dumb as a post. He did it to impress the women. Some fell for it. "Oh you are such a rebel." Puh-lease.

Someday, the county will make a new rule about tagging on bridges. Soon, people will stop doing this.

Yes! Good find Sheldon! Job well done!

I just ignore the graffiti as well. I have however, restrained myself from uploading photographs of some truly objectionable graffiti - ie Nazi symbols, racist words, etc...

I had a POOP QUAKE once after eating at a very questionable Taco Bell.

I got a great streetview of the bridge, but I wasn't trying to get you guys to check out the graffiti. I never do it either. Some graffiti can also hurt other people's feelings as well. But if I see graffiti on bridges, I just ignore it.

I'd likely get fired because I only would want to drive the roads with the cool bridges.......NO UCEB's for me!

See America, drive a "streetview" car for Google. There are some seriously small roads they have driven out in the midwest.
