7 weird things you can be fined for
In some towns, offenses that may seem trivial, like saggy pants, can cost you. These ordinances are some of the strangest.

the partiers fine also gets applied to anyone who plays music that the other residents who hear it don't like,
i had a situation in that very situation,
i was listening to my country music and i have a sound system that i built myself, ha ha ha.........
but the neighbors complained because i wasn't playing their rap crap that sounds like an out of tuned chain saw.
if i was playing what they liked, they would have been breaking the door down to tell me to turn it up.
It's specifically Monarch Butterflies that are protected in Pacific Grove, and for a very good reason: It's one of their wintering sites. On a sunny winter day, the air will be full of these beauties. When it's cold out, they fill the trees of their roosting groves like brown, orange, and black leaves.
That law was actually passed while I lived there, and was intended to keep gawkers from disturbing (or landowners from destroying) the roosting sites.
I’ve never been a big fan of saggy pants but I would also never want to live in a community that fines people for having bad taste and for being too stupid to know that they look like morons. Also I have to say that if I were ever fined for not mowing my lawn often enough I would take the whole thing out the next day and see how my neighbors like the look of dirt in place of a front lawn. As for the dog barking law I think it’s a great idea. I love dogs but I don’t think people should own them if they aren’t willing to put in the time to train them properly, particularly when it comes to barking for no reason.
