Delcambre town council, in Louisiana, USA, has ordained penalties of up to six months in jail and a $US500 fine for people who wear low-hanging pants, exposing their underwear and body parts to the world.

In ordering the penalties, the mayor, Carol Broussard, described the saggy-pants situation in Delcambre as “way out of hand”.

Albert Roy, the councillor who introduced the ordinance, agreed the fine was steep but said he still favoured the measure. “I don’t know if it will do any good, but it won’t hurt,” he said.

Broussard’s advice for people who like their pants on the low side of decency? “Just wear it properly. Cover your vital parts. I mean, if you expose your private parts, you’ll get a fine. If you walk up and your pants drop, you get a fine. They’re better off taking the pants off and just wearing a dress.”
