Curfew Laws

Curfew laws prohibit or limit your right to be out in public at certain times and are intended to maintain a certain level of order and safety in public spaces. Most curfew laws apply only to juveniles under the age of 18, while other curfew laws are enacted temporarily in response to a natural disaster or civil disturbance (and apply to all people in a city or local area), such as when martial law is invoked. This subsection includes articles on common juvenile curfew laws, legal challenges to curfew violation charges, a list of curfew laws in the 25 most populous U.S. cities, and more.
