Clinton Encourages Cities To Enact Curfews

Associated Press

President Clinton is recommending that cities enact curfews to keep youths under age 18 off the streets after 8 p.m. on school nights, 9 p.m. in the summer and 11 p.m. on weekends.

Clinton will endorse a report to be issued today by the Justice Department that recommends curfews with exceptions for youth who are married, accompanied by an adult, traveling for work, responding to an emergency or participating in a supervised school, church or recreational event.
