Ocala Florida lawmakers recently passed an “anti sagging law”. What’s that? Basically you cannot sag your pants 2 inches below your natural waistline without breaking the law. If you do so, you could face a fine of $500 or 6 months in jail.
But Ocala isn’t the only town where this law is in affect Wildwood New Jersey, a family-friendly town known for its boardwalk on the Jersey shore, banned sagging pants and revealing clothing last summer after complaints from tourists. Fines started at $25 but could add up to $200 as well 40 hours of community service. Other cities against sagging include New Orleans, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami and Jacksonville, Fla.
Shortly after this law was passed the NAACP stirred up criticism about the law and Ocala’s mayor declined support for the law urging the council to reconsider. The law was eventually turned over.
