You know that old adage about making sure you leave the house with clean underwear? Well… it would appear that dirty underwear is better than no underwear at all!
There was a court case involving a woman who got a heel of one of her shoes caught in a sidewalk grating, fell, and injured herself. The city subsequently passed this law in order to protect itself from future litigation.
This law is from Nogales, AZ. I wonder if someone’s brother owned a belt factory nearby? If so, this could be an early form of crony capitalism!
