Curfew laws will prevent people from going out into public and into specific kinds of public spaces at certain points in the day, most commonly at certain points in the evening considered to be particularly late, and applicable to people under a certain age considered to consign greater experience and self-control.
As such, curfew Laws in the U.S. can vary from state to state, and indeed from one municipality to another.
Curfew laws may thus be regarded as one of the basic functions which state and otherwise local governments are generally tasked with, as opposed to that of the federal government.
Curfew laws accordingly may vary in terms of the category of people on whom they are imposed, the particular hour of the day which curfew Laws require, and the enforcement measures which are put into place to enable curfew laws. As such, curfew Laws may involve different fines or penalties.
