Although curfews may not completely keep teens out of trouble they can reduce the chance that trouble will be found. Teens will always find some way to find trouble, although not always intentional, in the day or night time. Teenage crime is a major and growing problem, often involving both drugs and violence. These type of activities occur mostly late into the night. Crime as small as shoplifting or big as vandalizing property can end up on their record, crimes among teens occur after twelve where more people have gone to sleep or are unwatchful of who is outside causing trouble, but if teens have a curfew of at least eleven to eleven thirty they won’t be able to commit crimes later at night.
Sixty three percent of teens drink and the number will only get higher, chances are they’re doing this during the night where they can have a cover, although they can still do it at school they also have a chance of getting caught there as well as in the streets by authorities. We need to stop this.
