A ROAD sign in Rockhampton's Penlington Street is turning heads ... the wrong way.

An elderly woman, who lives in the Allenstown street, screws up her face every time she looks outside her window and sees a 5m-long drawing of a blue penis scribbled on the road outside her house.

The crude art piece has been on the road for about three weeks.

And now the resident, who doesn't want to be named in fear the situation may worsen, wants to turn the tables on the young juveniles she believes tried to scare her using "bullying tactics".

It all started when she noticed skaters zooming over her property on skateboards in the past few months.

"The kids were coming down Penlington so I thought I would park my car opposite my house just to let them know I was watching," she said.

"One of the young skaters saw me in my car ... I left the area and he chased my car, down Penlington St, using his skateboard.

"Then I noticed the sign about three weeks ago. I think they expected me to scream and fall to pieces but I don't give that sort of reaction.

"I want them to realise they are abusing elderly people and they should take some responsibility for their actions."

She wants the community to call on local youth to find the offenders who are about 15 to 17 years old.

"This is about embarrassing these young kids."
