The Parks and Recreation Department is seeking public input on proposed rules that would restrict smoking on shorelines.</p><p>Smoking is already restricted in all Oregon State Parks. You can smoke in your campsite or vehicle, but that's about it. Parks and Recreation Spokesman Chris Havel says people were inquiring about restricting cigarette use on beaches during the last public comment period about smoking on State Parks. He says if you restrict smoking in a park, people on the coast can just walk down to the beach.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:43:53 +0000 Desmond O'Boyle 18200 at http://klcc.org Oregon Beaches May Soon Be Smoke Free New Oregon Law Makes It A Crime To Smoke In Vehicle With Minors http://klcc.org/post/new-oregon-law-makes-it-crime-smoke-vehicle-minors <p>A new Oregon law went into effect January 1st making it a crime to smoke cigarettes in a vehicle with minors. It is a secondary offense to smoke in the car with minors. This means law enforcement has to stop a driver for a separate violation first. Then police can write a ticket with a fine of $250 for smoking in the vehicle with children. The second time it happens, the fine is $500.
