No smoking signs go up as Californian city implements ban

No smoking signs must be installed at parks in a Californian city as it becomes one of the last in Los Angeles to implement such a ban.

Torrance, in the South Bay region of LA County, has banned smoking in its public parks after spending some nine months reviewing its smoking legislation, reports. Smoking on its beach is already banned.

At a council meeting this week, some people voiced opposition to the ban, but others said that "smokers' rights end where non-smokers' noses begin and called the law long overdue", the news provider said.

Those backing the regulation reported that, over the course of just one weekend in one park in the city, they had picked up nearly 1,000 cigarette butts.

It is imperative that no smoking signs are put up at all parks so the new legislation can take effect. Those who flout the rules face a fine of up to $100 (about £60).

This month, New York also rolled out anti-smoking legislation, banning it in its parks and beaches.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800410701-ADNFCR
