According to a report in the San Francisco Examiner, police have started to enforce San Francisco's controversial ban on sitting or lying on public sidewalks.

However, it appears no one has been cited yet for violating the "sit-lie" ordinance. Police plan on issuing warnings before they start citing people.

Fines for repeat offenders will range from $50 to $500, with community service or jail time a possibility.

The law prohibits sitting or lying on sidewalks between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily.
