Chicago Considering Park Smoking Ban

Null

Chicago is the latest city to consider banning smoking in parks. The Parks District Board will consider a proposal that would outlaw smoking in nearly 600 parks and 10 harbors. According to Redeye Chicago, the current proposal would carry a fine of $500 for any violators.

If approved, it would mean smoking would be outlawed in the public parks of the five largest American cities. In 2011, Los Angeles and New York City both passed park smoking bans. Earlier this year, Houston and Philadelphia, the fourth and fifth most populous cities in America, passed park smoking bans.
