NY, taking away people’s liberties one law at a time

DAILY MAIL: New York has extended its ban on smoking to include parks and beaches, giving it some of the strictest rules on lighting up in the world.

Residents and tourists alike face fines of up to $100 (£62) if they smoke in any of the city’s 1,700 parks – including Central Park – and along its 14 miles of coastline.
The ban also covers public plazas such as Times Square.

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg banned smoking in bars and restaurants in 2003.

Parks department officials, not police, will hand out fines to those caught lighting up. Councillors also expect it will be self-enforced, with the public reminding smokers it is illegal to light up.

Smokers’ rights groups said the ban was an infringement of their liberties.

New York councillor Eric Ulrich said: ‘You can’t have salt, you can’t have sugar.
‘Hop on a bicycle because it’s bad to drive your car. It’s ridiculous. What’s next?’

While Ive spent the last months focusing on bringing reform to state government – passing a landmark ethics bill chairing the committee to expel a Senator convicted of domestic violence and delivering green jobs to restart our economy – I look forward to campaigning across the state in the coming weeks and months and taking my message of equal justice directly to the people of every region of New York. .
