New York City outdoor smoking ban begins.

Smokers in New York City looking for lighting up in most public places will not be able to without paying
a price after an outdoor citywide smoking ban takes an effect. The law, which Mayor Michael Bloomberg
signed in February 2011 after it was passed by the New York City Council, will make smoking illegal
in New York City's 1,700 parks and on the city's 14 miles of public beaches. Smoking will also be
prohibited in pedestrian plazas like Times Square. The ban is designed to help curb exposure to
secondhand smoke as well as reduce litter.

Secondhand smoke causes close to 50,000 deaths per annum, and side effects may include lung cancer,
respiratory infections and asthma, according to the American Lung Association's website. Cigarette
butts account for 75% of the litter found on New York City beaches, according to a news release
from Bloomberg's office. "Smoking in parks and beaches not only harms people trying to enjoy these
recreational facilities. It also causes a litter problem that harms the beauty of our parks," Bloomberg
said before he signed the bill into law. New York follows in the footsteps of 105 municipalities in states,
including California, Hawaii, Massachusetts and New Jersey that have banned smoking on public beaches.
Major cities, include Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Seattle. In states including California, Texas, Illinois,
Minnesota and New Jersey, 507 municipalities impose laws that prohibit city parks, or specifically named
city parks, to allow smoking. Major cities include Los Angeles, San Francisco and Salt Lake City.
Puerto Rico prohibits smoking in all parks and beaches.

"These smoke-free laws start at a local level," said Cynthia Hallett, executive director of Americans
for Nonsmokers' Rights. "They are based on community demand, science looking at exposure to
secondhand smoke and the environmental impact. Thirty-five states have laws, in effect, which require
the 100% smoke-free non-hospitality workplaces, restaurants or bars. The smokefree Laws compiled in
April 2011. In all, 79.4% of the country's population is covered by local and state laws banning smoking.
Hallett added that the trend to ban smoking is working from the inside out, starting in the indoor
workplace, moving to restaurants with patios and then eventually to the great outdoors.

The ban will be enforced by the city's parks department, and if violators are caught, they could be fined $50.
New York passed its first Smoke-Free Air Act in 1988, when smoking was banned in public restrooms
and taxicabs. Since then, the law has been amended three times, most notably in 2002, when smoking
in some indoor areas, including restaurants
and bars, was banned.
