  • Yes, young drivers should have a night-time curfew.

    Not only drivers, but young people period. They have no business out on the roads, or out partying at all after dusk. There should be a dusk curfew, unless there is a school function that is supervised by a responsible adult. I think the age should be eighteen and under for curfew.

  • Yes, young drivers should be restricted by having a night-time curfew in order to reduce accidents.

    Since the majority of new drivers do not have sufficient experience handling the complex task of driving when they are first granted a driver's license they should be restricted to driving during specific hours of the day. By imposing a night-time curfew new are given time to develop their driving skills, while being kept off the roads during the high risk night-time driving hours.

  • Yes teen should have a night time curfew

    Not only do they need to be at home a good time they do not need to go to party and get drunk and stuff like that. Some of them are bad drivers the set time could be 12:00 am and you can only drive if you to go some where

  • Good to drive at night

    It is good to drive at night because if you need to get to a place you could get there on time when you drive at night, or if something bad happend you could get ti that place faster. Thats why i think people should drive at night and not have a curfew. :)

  • Don't they already?

    I do think young drivers already have a night-time curfew and I think it is safe to say that is not going away any time soon. I do feel it should be a bit later then it is, however, as students have to put a lot of group projects in high school.

  • Young drivers should have a night-time curfew.

    Young drivers have been known to be less safe when they are driving. In order to keep everyone safer, young drivers should not be allowed to drive at night. Driving at night can be more dangerous because there is less visibility and there are more drunk drivers out at night.

  • Yes. I believe young drivers should have a a night-time curfew.

    Yes. I believe young drivers should have a night-time curfew, because they are not mature enough to handle the dangerous scenarios that can occur late at night. Young drivers should not be driving alone at night. There should always be an adult there to supervise them, or horrible things can happen..

  • Night time, teenagers are at high risk of accident

    Since the majority of new drivers do not have sufficient experience handling the complex task of driving when they are first granted a driver's license they should be restricted to driving during specific hours of the day. By imposing a night-time curfew new are given time to develop their driving skills, while being kept off the roads during the high risk night-time driving hours.

  • No night curfew after 3 months

    I feel that 16yr old should have a night time curfew of 11pm for the first 6 months after obtaining their license. After the 3 months the curfew should be extended to 1:30 am. I feel that kids should get the experience of driving at these house be cause if not when they turn 18 years of age they won't have the experience and it could cause issues.

  • Curfews are a ridiculous attack on young peoples' civil liberties

    The idea that young people should have a time after which they cannot drive, or even go out at all in some places, is a highly oppressive one. The arguments in favour of curfews generally seem to range from "it's dangerous" to "they (young people) have no right to be after X hour".

    Both of these arguments fall down in the face of a little critical assessment. The idea that night time driving is more dangerous is essentially ludicrous. Yes, visibility is reduced, that is a given, and yes, there is admittedly a rise in the number of drink drivers on Friday and Saturday nights. However, this should be balanced against the risk reductions that come about as a result of driving late and at night. One of the major factors is the sheer reduction in volume of traffic. Approximately 45% of accidents (google it) involve either hitting another car, or being hit by another car. Driving at night, when there are significantly fewer cars on the roads, will inevitably lead to a lowering of the risks posed by other road users. Additionally, while visibility generally is reduced, in some ways it is increased, such as on unlit roads, going round bends. During the day, there would be no way to know that someone else was approaching around the other side, but at night, their headlights give them away. This also applies to cars pulling out of streets, or away from the curb. All manner of situations which might otherwise cause accidents are easier to spot.

    As for the other main argument in support of curfews, that pernicious suggestion that young people shouldn't be allowed to move freely - it is simply socially illiberal drivel. The only reasons given to support this are that young people are more likely to be out partying, or involved in anti-social behaviour, or doing drugs, or having sex. You name it, young people are allegedly doing it. This is, of course, outright discrimination. There is never anything behind it beyond media hysteria, conservative instincts, and the feeling that those who are different are also immoral, and deserving of less rights. These people believe that young people are either so depraved, or so stupid, that they cannot be allowed to make their own decisions about when they travel. It is an outright rejection of their human right to freedom of movement, which is not lessened by their age.

    Western liberal democracies are not founded on superstition and gut feelings, but on reasoned argument, and on the idea that all should be equal before the law. Curfews run directly counter to this ideal, and should be abolished. I would hope that all who value the society we are so fortunate to live in would be supportive of this motion.

  • It's basically the same as daytime.

    There should not be a driving curfew mainly for the reason of young kids who are working. From personal experience, I have been out working past 10 and to get pulled over for that is stupid. By trying to be responsible and working for things yourself, you shouldn't be punished. If someone is doing something wrong then let them get in trouble. But if it's for working or coming home from something important that is ridiculous. It's pretty much the same as day time. Anyone could be doing anything wrong at any time.

  • No they should not.

    Young driver should be allowed to driver at night. In order to get your license, you have to do a certain amount of hours driving at night, so they already have the practice. If you have a license, then you have earned it and should be allowed to drive at any time.

  • They shouldn't legally

    Curfews should not be enforced by any local or federal government establishment, that is the duty of the parents to enforce. Fining teenagers for missing a curfew is a ridiculous policy, and to the best of my knowledge, most counties in the country with a curfew for teenagers barely enforce them, if ever. That's the way it should be - not the problem of the government.

  • Young Drivers Should Not Have a Driving Curfew

    Just another senseless piece of legislation that would be burdensome to enforce, and would not help to solve whatever problem it would be intended to solve. There are laws already in place to address issues such as drinking and driving, etc. And these in themselves are sufficient enough to handle what is most likely the impetus behind consideration of this curfew. A curfew will not fix the problem, only create more youthful offenders for something that is not criminal at all.

  • This is known as discrimination

    If we did this to every group that statistically is involved in a great amount of accidents than the average it would be called discrimination. What if we said that males cannot drive at all or at night because, after all, males are statistically more likely to be in accidents? This is ludicrous - once someone reaches the age at which they are seen as fit to drive society the law should have no preconceived notions about them. It is often necessary for teens to drive at night to work and back etc. This deals with the larger problem that North American society has with discrimination against youth, i.E. Targeting for "loitering" etc.
