The CTA is making it tougher on graffiti vandals and their parents.

Because of its expanding network of surveillance cameras, the CTA is able to record and identify people who spray-paint buses, trains and transit buildings with graffiti.

The latest tactic involves suing the parents of children who get caught tagging and requiring the families to pay for cleanup.

This week, the CTA filed four lawsuits totaling more than $13,000 in hopes of recouping some of those damage costs.
