White Plains to expand smoking ban

A smoking ban already in place in White Plains is to be expanded starting next month.

Smoking is already forbidden at spots like restaurants and bars in White Plains. Starting July 6, smoking will also be banned in city parks, plazas, playgrounds and trails. The ban will be mostly self-enforced, but those caught smoking will be fined $25 for their first offense, and $50 for their second.

The smoking ban is similar to laws already in affect in Manhattan.
