Cops tell women: Wear nice pants


Recommended Posts



Police have warned women setting off for a night on the town to wear "nice pants".


It's in case they fall down drunk in the street and "show off more than you intended".


The advice comes in a Suffolk police safety campaign magazine which shows pictures of young women slumped on the ground.


"If you've got it, don't flaunt it," they are urged.


The magazine adds: "If you fall over or pass out, remember your skirt or dress may ride up.


"For all our sakes, please make sure you're wearing nice pants and that you've recently had a wax."


The article goes on to say it would be better not to get blind drunk in the first place.


Readers are also told to stick with friends, book a taxi home and watch the amount they drink.


Officers said the gossipy, tongue-in-cheek style was designed to alert young women to the dangers of getting legless on nights out.


"We need to raise their awareness of potential problems," said Chief Superintendent David McDonnell.


"Women become more vulnerable whilst under the influence of alcohol."
