Smoking in a Portland park could land you a ticket, a court date and a fine.

Back in February the city of Portland passed an ordnance that bans smoking in the city’s parks, playgrounds, trails and public spaces. It allows police cadets and officers to ticket anyone seen smoking in unauthorized locations.The ordnance also says police must give at least one warning about the law to the smoker. It also requires the city to display ordinance signs in those public spaces.

If busted, the violator has to pay a visit to court. Depending on their plea, they will be given a fine. The standard fine is $100, but ranges from $50 to $500.

The city is also cracking down on folks flinging their butts or packaging on the sidewalk. That is also a $100 fine.
