A Florida commissioner wants to revise a current ban against men who wear their pants too low to now include women.

The city of Opa-Locka, in Miami-Dade County, enacted a ban on saggy pants ban in 2007, but commissioner Dorothy Johnson said it’s not enough after seeing women walking around with their undergarments showing, CBS Miami reported.

“I heard a little boy say, ‘Mommy, pull your pants up, that man is looking at you,’” she told the station. “Your son is telling you this, and she didn’t see anything wrong with it.”

Miss Johnson plans to meet with female police officers and city residents to hear feedback on the proposed revisions. Then, she hopes to offer a formal revision in December.

“I don’t want people to be fined just to be fined, I want to flesh it out and have some town hall meetings,” she said.

People who violate the current ban face a fine of $500 or 25 hours of community service. More than 70 people have been ticketed for the offense so far this year, CBS reported.
