Are you aware there will be fines if you are out past curfew?
Happy Monday! On Friday, I published an article sharing with you what Detroit is doing to try and combat the increase in fires and criminal activity during the night before and on Halloween. In that article, 2012 Angel’s Night in Detroit, we discovered the increase in criminal activity and how thousands of Detroiters are fighting it.
At the end of the article we published the proposed curfews for the City of Detroit:
- Monday, October 29th 2012 – Curfew is from 6 p.m.
- Tuesday, October 30th 2012 – Curfew ends 6 a.m. and starts again at 6 p.m.
- Wednesday, October 31 2012 – Curfew ends 6 a.m.
The Detroit Free Press informs us that the above times are the curfew that the Detroit Police are imposing. However, there has been so clarification. During those curfew times,
No one age 18 or younger is allowed to be on public streets, sidewalks, alleys, parks, playgrounds, or any other outdoor public place.

In addition, on Wednesday, those 15 and younger are not allowed on city streets after 8 p.m. and until 6 a.m. the following day. If you are 16 or 17 you have to be off the streets on Wednesday by 9 p.m. till 6 a.m on Thursday.
You may be wondering, what happens if I get caught?
If you or your child is caught passed curfew, you will be ticketed and the parent will be issued a Parental Responsibility Ordinance Violation. You will have to present at a court hearing and the fine will run from $50 to $500.
If you are out past curfew and need some help remember to keep my number handy. A good lawyer can go a long way.
