HONOLULU (AP) — No smoking signs are being posted to remind the public it will soon be illegal to smoke at Oahu parks and bus stops.

The smoking bans go into effect Jan. 1.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell posted signs Thursday at Thomas Square Park and a nearby bus stop.

Caldwell signed a bill banning smoking at all city parks and beaches, except golf courses. He also signed another bill banning smoking within 20 feet of a bus stop or shelter.

The City Council unanimously passed the bills in July.

Penalties range from a $100 fine for the first violation to $500 for three or more violations.
