How Do I Remove Striping Paint from my Vehicle?
Anoka County uses a waterborne latex paint for the yellow and white roadway lines. If you get some on your vehicle, it should be removed as soon as possible. Some suggestions for removal are:
Using a pressure washer found at a self-service car wash. If done right away should remove all of the paint from the vehicle without damaging the vehicles finish.
Using a solution of hot water, ammonia (one cup per gallon of water) and soap. The area with paint may need to be soaked multiple times until the paint softens, so it can be rinsed.
Using isopropyl alcohol on a soft rag and pressing it against the painted area will also soften the paint so it can be rinsed. Claim Information:
Anoka County is not responsible for the cost of removing traffic paint from vehicles that cross wet roadway lines, nor any damage caused by owner while attempting to remove the paint. The county will, however, allow you to present your information by filling out a Liability Claim Form. Someone from the county Risk Management Department will contact you.
