WILDWOOD, N.J. (CBS) — Police in Wildwood will begin enforcing the baggy pants ban on the boardwalk Tuesday.

The ordinance unanimously passed by City Commissioners in June was expected to take effect a week ago.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano really doesn’t want to make a big deal of the mandate, even though he was the driving force behind it.

“We’re just asking them, kindly, to pick their pants up and hopefully the majority of the people will follow that rule,” Troiano says.

Troiano expect some hot shot kid to put the law to the test.

Police will ask someone riding their pants more than three inches below the waist to pull them up. If that’s declined, they’ll be asked to leave the boardwalk.

If they refuse, they’ll get a ticket.

On the North Wildwood end of the boards, there is no such regulation.
