Pro-Trump graffiti in Roslindale

Ardale Street is a one-way street in Roslindale that ends at Centre Street by a 7-Eleven. One fed-up resident files a complaint:

Vehicles are constantly driving up our one way street. Drivers turn left out of 7-11 parking lot and go the wrong way even if they know they're doing it. I just saw someone who lives on the street do it. She does it like 10 times a week. I don't know what to do about this. There are already one-way/do not enter signs.
