NYC No Smoking Ban At Parks, Other Public Places, To Start Monday

New smoking laws will take effect in New York City Monday, prohibiting smokers from lighting up in certain public places.

No smoking sings are already up in Central Park. Come Monday the city’s sweeping ban kicks in at parks, beaches and pedestrian plazas, like in Times Square.

The question now is, will anyone obey the law? Mayor Michael Bloomberg has indicated the police are busy with criminals and terrorists and expects the public to give smokers a kindly reminder.

The law was passed as a way to help prevent second-hand smoke.
