Driver gives teen fortnight to clean graffiti before call to cops

A MOTORIST who said he saw a youth spraying graffiti on a concrete wall off the Pacific Hwy this week has told the culprit he has two weeks to clean up his tags.

The resident said he was exiting the Woolgoolga off-ramp on Wednesday about 10pm when he saw a teenage male with a spray can in hand, writing a tag in black paint.

"He had that shifty look, like 'geez I've just been caught'," the driver said.

"So I doubled around the roundabout, and as I did he ran from the scene.

"I saw him running towards a vehicle that was parked nearby on the Graham Dr (Solitary Islands Way) and I watched him jump into his vehicle.

"So I drove right up behind his vehicle and wrote his number plate down.

"He was a p-plater and he couldn't drive off quick enough."

The resident called The Advocate about the incident saying he would report the matter to the police if the graffiti wasn't removed.

"I believe in giving teenagers a second go when they get into strife," he said.

"He knows I have his details so I'm giving him two weeks to clean up his mess or I'll be handing over his details to police."
