Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Frisco TX Initiates Teen Curfew

Frisco TX Initiates Teen Curfew

The city of Frisco, TX has noticed more and more crime these days.  Their solution? Get the teens off the streets and see if that helps.

The curfew is for anyone under 17 years of age, Sunday through Thursday at 11pm with Friday and Saturday going until 12 midnight.  What about those high school kids who are 18?  They're considered adults, but yet, they're still in school.  Maybe it should be extended to also include 18 year olds who are still in high school?

There are a couple of other cities that already have curfews, and I don't recall ever seeing any results of crime decreasing.  If teens are going to get into trouble, they're going to get into trouble no matter what.

Anyone in Frisco or Collin County with an opinion on this?

Yet another example of City Government protecting us from ourselves.

I would love to see the data

I think teen curfews have little effect on teenage crime or gang activities. The law abiding teenagers are the ones that are going to adhere to the curfew and those aren't the kids we are concerned about.   It penalizes teenagers just because they are teenagers!

No this isn’t a good idea what teenager cares about stealing and the ones that do won’t listen to the curfew anyways so you’re only punishing the ones that are good kids
