OPA-LOCKA, Florida (AP) - A South Florida city is considering extending its ban on saggy pants to women.
Opa-Locka city commissioners have tentatively approved an ordinance authorizing police to ticket women as well as men for wearing pants exposing any undergarments.
Opa-Locka originally banned saggy pants for men in 2007 in city parks and buildings. The ordinance was amended in 2010 to include any public place in the city. Violators face a $500 fine or community service.
Commissioner Dorothy Johnson tells The Miami Herald that she was motivated to sponsor the latest change by encounters with women in the city who were walking around with their underwear showing.
Johnson says she wants to have female police officers and community aides speak with women before she offers potential amendments to the ordinance in December.
