Typical Provisions of Clean Indoor Air Ordinances
Ordinances are generally considered self-enforcing—citations rarely need to be issued. Most people will obey the law, if they are aware it exists.115
Compliance with laws is achieved through education of the business community and the general public.116
Ordinances usually require posting of “No Smoking” signs and removing ashtrays from smokefree areas.117
