NEW YORK (OCN) — Ever so often, the discussion comes up on why New York City should have a citywide curfew and some of the reasons are below.
More and more crimes (such and theft in the subway) are being perpetrated by minors late at night on the elderly so most curfews ore often thought to be able to curb these crimes as parents or legal guardians would have pay more attention to the minors under their protection. Unfortunately, with the cost of living in New York City, most parents have to have multiple jobs to take care of the household or their main job is at night so they are not home to monitor their teens.
During the day, to improve school attendance, a curfew to prohibit minors in the street is what some feel can help.
With a hurricane an other natural disasters, curfews are one idea to help prevent looting during loss of power and limited necessities need to survive during and after the storm.
