NJ cops: No signs, no tickets

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Smokers can continue lighting up in a northern New Jersey community despite a new anti-smoking ordinance.

Police in Denville say they're not going to enforce it until the town posts signs.

The ordinance - which bans smoking on bleachers, sidewalks, and in parking lots at municipal parks and recreation areas - took effect Wednesday.

First-time offenders face fines of up to $100, or up to two days community service.

Denville officials are not sure when the signs will be available.
