Bismarck residents have voted to extend North Dakota’s smoking ban to truck stops, bars and tobacco stores.
The state already prohibited indoor smoking in businesses and public places, but had allowed exemptions for certain business categories. In an April 19 special election, residents voted to apply the ban to those exempt categories.
Residents voted against a proposal to permit smoking huts outside of bars to shield smokers in the winter.
Bismarck City Commission began the ban April 27.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
