Laguna Beach. has expanded its smoking ban to cover just about everywhere in the coastal California town.

The city’s smoking ban already covered parks and beaches, but it will now include sidewalks, bike paths, parking garages and alleys. In short, if you would like to smoke, you must do it in your car or your home.

Fines are $100 for the first violation, $200 for the second and $500 for a third violation within one year.

Long Beach is located 20 miles south of Los Angeles. It is the ninth most populous city in the state with a population over a half million.
