Weird Fort Lauderdale Laws
The Galanter Law Blog typically covers topics related to serious legal issues in South Florida such as driving under the influence, boating under the influence, criminal defense practice, domestic violence, drug charges, traffic crime offenses, and current events such as local DUI checkpoints, but today we wanted to lighten things up a bit and talk about some of the wacky and strange laws in Fort Lauderdale.
Did you know that in Fort Lauderdale, persons working at hot dog stands can’t be “inappropriately dressed?” Specifically, pursuant to Section 39-300(2) of the Broward County Regulations,
“Persons vending from mobile food units who are inappropriately attired shall be considered to cause a hazard or impediment to traffic. Inappropriate attire shall include clothing which shows any portion of the anal cleft, cleavage or buttocks of males or females such as G-strings, T-back bathing suits, thong bikinis or any other clothing or covering that does not completely and opaquely cover the anal cleft, cleavage or buttocks of males and females. Inappropriate attire shall also include clothing which shows the portion of the human female breast directly or laterally below a point immediately above the top of the areola with less than a fully opaque covering. This definition shall include the entire lower portion of the human female breast, including the areola and nipple, but shall not include any portion of the cleavage of the human female breast exhibited by a dress, blouse, shirt, leotard, bathing suit or other clothing, provided the areola is not exposed.”
Here’s another wacky law in Fort Lauderdale for you: all horses must be equipped with horns and headlights.
