Let it soak under a warm wet cloth then when it softens it should just wash off.

The damage might already be done

How long has the crap been there?

Cheers

Always make sure there is a good coat of polish on your car, because it will protect your paintwork from this exact problem. If left on long enough it will eat through the polish aswell but it gives you a longer time frame to work with. I would also advise that once it is off get some polish on as it will ensure that any further damage will be prevented especially as it seems you live where it gets warm
