I think that curfew is ridiculous, because people should be responsible for themselves.

i have lived in a town that did not enforce a curfew all my life and then a year ago i move to surprise and i learn that my parents are no longer in charge of what time i should be home. I think the government should not tell our parents what time we have to be home. I have spent my life building the trust that my parents have for me, they know i can be trusted so why should they not be allowed to let me stay out on weekends till 1? Another point i have is that curfews don't reduce crime they just put a time limits on it.

What is a minor constituted as for this law? I'm 18 and my dad swears that this law applies to teenagers 18 AND younger. Personally, 10:00 is WAY too early and doesn't allow for fun; on the other hand, it prevents ongoing parties, etc.
