This ordinance “prohibits any person in public view from wearing pants or skirts three inches below the top of the waistline, exposing undergarments or skin.”
This isn’t just to clean up the town; this ordinance is also to prevent stereotyping, because, according to the article, saggy pants may label you as a criminal. Who knew?
If you don’t want to pay the fine, which ranges from $25 to $100 per offense, you can choose community service instead.
Are you wondering how police officers will know which offenders deserve tickets, versus those who deserve a mere warning? Fear not – the officers are receiving pant patrol training.
Well, I cannot begin to tell you how relieved I am. It’s about time police officers took the time to learn how to properly patrol saggy pants.
