    I have a better suggestion. Since this is happening at night, how about running a few lines of electric fence wire across the area, and put up a wild game camera. That way when they hit the fence they will get a nice electric jolt, plus with the game camera you can get some pictures to show the police, complete with time and date stamps.

    might I suggest vinyl coated rebar, they might move the fence a little, but chances are they wont be back for an encore performance....

    Vinyl fencing is too easily destroyed, defaced...get a nice sturdy wood fence and pay unemployed youth to stain or paint it, give them something positive to do. We don't bother to install any kind of fence, as we anticipate this kind of destruction by bored teenagers. A clean white vinyl fence is just too inviting a target, I fear.

    For the younger generation, seems like ugly is the in thing to do, be.

    Of course, don't expect us to do anything about it. We are too busy writing tickets for faded license plate stickers.

    The problem with kids these days is, most of them have never visited the back side of a wood shed with their Dad. Get a German Shepard!

    I wonder if those vinyl fences are difficult to fill with concrete.
