CS Smoking Ban Enforcement Yields No Citations

Smoke-filled bars in College Station are now a thing of the past, but so far, there have been no violators.

Police started enforcing the smoking ban on Sunday, and said there have been no complaints or tickets issued so far.

For the past month, the city has been trying to educate the public on the new ban.

The ordinance prohibits anyone from smoking in a bar or restaurant, or within 10 feet of the entrances to those businesses.

If you're caught smoking, it could cost you $140, according to city officials.

To report violators, you can call the College Station Police Department's non-emergency line at 764-3600.
