The LONGPORT Board of Commissioners have approved an ordinance that bans smoking at all Longport buildings, parks, playgrounds….and the beach.
No smoking of cigarettes, cigars, pipes and those electronic VAPING cigarettes too.
Get caught lighting up in a prohibited Longport location, and face a fine for up to $250. Get caught a second time, it’ll set you back $500. You’ll get whacked for $1,000 for each subsequent smoking offense.
Secondhand smoke and cigarette butts were the main culprits for this Longport ban.
Some think the beach is a giant ashtray? Marine life is affected by cigarette butts as well.
