Vandalism is a crime that is not restricted to a specific type of urban object, but not all objects are equally likely to become a target for vandalism.

Indicators for an increased chance of an object becoming a target for vandalism, are described on the page about vandalism. Some important aspects to determine whether an area has many targets for vandalism are:

  • Are there many public objects (objects with little ownership associated with them) in the area?
  • Are there public objects that can be made to fail in amusing or spectacular fashion (such as hardened glass)
  • Are these objects easily accessible?
