Tacoma removes unofficial crosswalks

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Someone took it upon themselves to paint crosswalks at four intersections last week in Tacoma.

City officials say it's the second time in a month the crosswalk vigilantes have struck in the middle of the night.

Public Works Director Kurtis Kingsolver says the painting is illegal, like graffiti. A one was dangerous, leading pedestrian into traffic.

KOMO reports ( workers have cleaned up each location at a cost of about $1,000 at each intersection.
