    § 17-506 Posting of signs; prohibition of ashtrays.
    a.  Except  as  may  otherwise be provided by rules promulgated by the
  commissioner, "Smoking" or "No  Smoking"  signs,  or  the  international
  symbols  indicating  the  same,  and any other signs necessary to comply
  with  the  provisions  of  this  chapter  shall   be   prominently   and
  conspicuously  posted  where  smoking is either prohibited, permitted or
  otherwise regulated by this chapter, by the owner, operator, manager  or
  other  person  having control of such area. The size, style and location
  of such signs shall be determined in accordance with  rules  promulgated
  by  the  commissioner,  but in promulgating such rules, the commissioner
  shall take into consideration the  concerns  of  the  various  types  of
  establishments  regulated herein with respect to the style and design of
  such signs.
    b. In addition to the posting of signs as provided in  subdivision  a,
  every  owner,  manager  or  operator  of a theater which exhibits motion
  pictures to the public shall show upon the  screen  for  at  least  five
  seconds prior to the showing of each feature motion picture, information
  indicating that smoking is prohibited within the premises.
    c.  The owner, operator or manager of a hotel or motel that chooses to
  develop and implement a smoking policy for rooms rented to guests  shall
  post  a  notice  at  the  reception  area of the establishment as to the
  availability, upon request, of smoke-free rooms.
    d. 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.
