Ashtrays are prohibited in all smoke-free areas covered by this chapter except (i) ashtrays offered for sale or (ii) ashtrays placed immediately adjacent to hotel and motel elevators and immediately adjacent to public entrances to hotels and motels, provided that such ashtrays are positioned so that second-hand smoke emanating from such ashtrays will not ordinarily activate smoke detectors and provided further that "No Smoking" signs as set forth in subdivision a of this section and in any rules promulgated by the commissioner shall be posted immediately adjacent to such ashtrays.
