Opa-Locka, Fla., Rule On Low-Riding Pants To Be Extended To Women

OPA-LOCKA, Fla. (UPI) — An Opa-Locka, Fla., law authorizing police to ticket men wearing sagging pants will be extended to women, municipal commissioners said.

They have tentatively approved an ordinance, initially passed in 2007, banning pants worn by either men or women in public places that expose any undergarments, The Miami Herald reported Friday, adding 72 people have received tickets this year for pants hanging too low.

Commissioner Dorothy Johnson sponsored the change in the law, saying she was motivated by seeing women around the city with underwear showing.

“I heard a little boy say, ‘Mommy, pull your pants up. That man is looking at you.’ Your son is telling you this, and she didn’t see anything wrong with it,” Johnson said.
