Every morning, during a train trip, Orlok has to look out of the window at the scrawl war going on. The railway line is prime turf in the battle twixt Auckland Transport and the taggers. Walls are painted, scrawled on and then repainted in what amounts to a losing battle to the aerosol can. Commuters long for the kind of scrawl trap depicted here, except maybe one that offers severe electric shocks to the gonads.
