According to a report on Fox News, Great Neck's mayor Ralph J. Kreitzman commented that village officials received complaints about the number of smokers that stood just outside Great Neck stores.
Those who violate the new ban could wind up with a hefty $1000 fine.
What do you think of this ban? Is it an intelligent way to protect citizens from second-hand smoke? Do you think that smokers scuttling around the sidewalks prevents those who choose not to smoke from entering a store? Or do you think that smokers should do as they please when and where they want to? Please leave a comment below.
