Whether you’re proposing marriage or it’s a promposal, there are ways you just don’t ask. Vandalism is one of those ways to avoid, as it is not only illegal, but the clean-up is a meticulous process.
Here is the result of a promposal via vandalism in Colorado (via sfgate.com):
Unfortunately, whoever took black spray paint to the Colorado National Monument last month apparently didn’t get the memo, and the National Park Service is trying to find the vandal responsible.
A local who lives nearby was the first to report the damage caused by the “promposal” — a term ascribed to a creative invitation to a high school prom — on May 23. On Saturday, the monument posted a few photos of the vandalism on Facebook, asking followers to contact the park’s visitor center with any information.
Apparently, punishment for vandalism like this includes a $5,000 fine and up to six months in prison. The Colorado National Monument is requesting that if anybody has any information on the vandalism to call 970-858-3617 ext. 360. They are willing to be “more lenient” should the vandal turn themselves in.
So, for those people in Montana, or anywhere else, for that matter, that are trying to be unique with your proposal, please refrain from incorporating vandalism into the process. It is illegal.
