A person can walk down the streets of Sacramento in the nude without any legal problems under a loophole in the city’s public nudity law.
The culprit is section 9.04.060 of the Sacramento city code. It outlaws nudity in public parks, playgrounds and beaches, but it leaves out streets and sidewalks.
Under that law, a nude person would be violating the law if they were in Cesar Chavez Park, but technically they wouldn’t be if they stepped onto the sidewalk.
“I just don’t wanna see butts everywhere,” said Sacramento resident Jazmin Velazquez. “I dunno if that’s what I wanna see.”
