Which in turn limits the trouble they get in, but it doesn’t stop them from doing things to get them in trouble. Teens love being rebels, so they will try to do the opposite of what they are told anyways. Putting a curfew on teens only makes them want to find more trouble whenever their curfew isn’t in effect.
