Campus begins enforcing smoking law

Lighting up at the U of I could get you a ticket

CHAMPAIGN/URBANA, Ill. - The University of Illinois is now policing smoking on campus.

It's been a "Smoke Free" campus since 2014, but it's only been a state law since July.

Your first offense is just a warning, but after that it comes with a $25.00 fine. That can be avoided, though, by completing an online class. Your third and fourth offenses will cost $50 and then $100.

Deputy Chief Skip Frost says that while they'll continue to enforce the law, it is not a top priority as they focus on keeping campus safe.
