Full Answer

The curfew act states that any person under the age of 17 cannot be at any public assembly, building, place, street or highway between 12:01 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday or between 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. the following day from Sunday to Thursday inclusive. Curfew hours start earlier for minors ages 12 to 16 and even earlier for minors under the age of 12.

A violation of the Child Curfew Act is a petty offense and it is punishable by fines. Minors and their parents or guardians can be charged with violating curfew laws.
