Fort Worth Extends Teen Curfew

NBC 5 News

The teen curfew in Fort Worth will remain in place for three more years.

A public hearing on the curfew was held Tuesday night and council members then voted to extend the ordinance for another three years.

The curfew requires minors age 17 and younger to leave public places, including roads, highways, schools, shops, etc., from 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 12:01 a.m. until 6 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

There are exceptions, such as if the minor is in the company of a parent or guardian or if they are working.

The ordinance also makes it illegal for a parent or guardian to knowingly allow a minor to violate the curfew through permission or "insufficient control."

Violations of the curfew are subject to a $500 fine.
