DENISON, Tex. -- It looks like anyone 16 and under will have to wait a few years to make late-night plans in Denison.

The Denison City Council has voted to extend their teen curfew. Anyone age 16 and younger must be off the streets from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Thursday, and Friday and Saturdays from midnight until 6 a.m.

Police say the fine for violating curfew is $90.

Denison Curfew

    I think that teens should be able to walk around outside if they please it should be a right. God gave us legs to walk I myself am a teen and do disagree with teen curfew because i have rights it might not say it in the Constitution but I should be able to walk around the sstreets of my city as late as I please if you put teens in this state you are saying that grownups are better than us and can walk around yet they are not they are equal thats how god made them.

    I think it is great they extended the curfew. I understand some kids have to work but their school should be first and they should be in bed at a decent hour. If they are working on a school night employeers should not be keeping them past 11 pm anyways because of school the next day. Midnight is not unreasonable for the weekend either, we are talking about 16 yr olds here not adults. There has been so many problems recently with teenagers running around trashing each others houses, that they had to do something. Any decent parent should want their 16 yr old home by then anyways, I will when my girls are 16.

    I have teenagers - and it wouldn't bother me one little bit to have the police call me to ask if I knew they were driving home from work after 11PM. Also - why do the businesses need to be open after 11pm? Even if you want something to eat and drink you can get it at Wal-Mart after 11PM.

    i agree with the other anonymous.. Some restraunts don't cloes till 11 sometimes on the weekends.. and sometimes you don't get out until 1 depending on when people leave and when everything is ready for the next day... Teens going to get ticketed for trying to make a living in paying there bills. there parents dont???

    I would imagine if the child is coming home from a school sporting event or work and can prove it, the fine would be thrown out. I think the city is concerned with the kids that are just "hanging around".
