NJ cops: No signs, no tickets
DENVILLE, N.J. - 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.
