We got the "always wear clean underwear" mantra from Mom. Police in Suffolk, England, have taken it another step with a new public service campaign aimed at making sure pub-crawling women "wear nice pants" so they won't show their privates if they're falling-down drunk.

Reuters explains:
A Suffolk police safety campaign magazine shows pictures of young women slumped on the ground next to messages urging them: "If you've got it, don't flaunt it".

"If you fall over or pass out, remember your skirt or dress may ride up," the magazine says. "You could show off more than you intended -- for all our sakes, please make sure you're wearing nice pants and that you've recently had a wax."

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

Police said the Safe! magazine's gossipy, tongue-in-cheek style was designed to alert young women to the dangers they could face if they get drunk during a night out.
The cops in Suffolk must not read Hair To Stay magazine. Hey, do your own Googling to find the NSFW site.
