NJ town bans saggy pants on boardwalk; mayor says rear view is offending visitors
WILDWOOD, N.J. - Hindsight will soon be punishable by a $25 fine in this Jersey Shore resort.
Wildwood passed a law Wednesday night banning overly saggy pants on the boardwalk, prompted by numerous complaints from longtime visitors about having to see people's rear ends hanging out in public.
Subsequent violations of the law, which could take effect as early as July 2, could result in fines as high as $200, and 40 hours of community service.
