In Washington state, the use of drones is expanding to combat graffiti vandalism, following the approval of a pilot program for 'spray drone technology.' The Washington State Department of Transportation will test the use of drones to cover up existing graffiti, targeting areas along Interstate 5, from Tacoma to Seattle, and in the north Spokane corridor. The initiative, signed by Gov. Jay Inslee, also includes the use of cameras to deter and identify perpetrators. The bill aims to address the increasing concern about graffiti on roadways and convey a strong message against allowing the actions of a few to shape the community's narrative. This innovative approach marks a significant step forward in addressing the challenges posed by graffiti vandalism in Washington state, utilizing technology typically used in agricultural settings to combat this form of urban blight.
