Dublin, Sep 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Dublin has given the biggest indication ever that it is fed up with “improper” dressing. The city council of Dublin has passed a law that will prohibit people from wearing baggy pants and skirts beyond a certain level.

According to the new law, offenders will be fined for indecent dressing. And the mayor of the city - Phil Best believes the new law is good for the community. The Mayor believes hinted that over a hundred people have approached him and indicated their support for the new law.

But the black locals believe the new law is meant to discriminate against them. Some believe enforcing the new law will lead to racial profiling in the community.

Others also maintain that they do not feel offended by those who wear baggy pants. Even among those who said they feel offended by the wearing of the baggy pants, they admit that people have the right to dress and wear what they feel like.

The new law which states that people are not allowed to wear anything “more than three inches below the top of the hips” will be signed into effect by the Mayor on Tuesday and offenders will be required to pay a fine of $25 for first time offense and a max of $200 for subsequent offense. Offenders can also be made to do more than 40 hours of community service to repeated offense.
