One of our local councillors came up with her own way of deterring
teenagers from hanging around the bus stops in the CBD, & also homeless
from sleeping there overnight.

She had vandalism-proof speakers installed over them, that play classical
music 24/7!

It's worked!

"preventing"=sleeping / sitting / skateboarding / urination / camping etc
would work?

I don't really like preventing but something along that general idea?
Prevention_of? Deterring/ent?
