Curfew in Colerain Reportedly ‘Passed without Opposition’

A daytime curfew was passed in Colerain Township on September 25. According to a news report in The Enquirer, only three people attended the local government meeting to speak in favor of the measure.

Home School Legal Defense Association opposes daytime curfews as unreasonable and unnecessary restraints on the civil liberties of American citizens. Even when, as in this case, the measure explicitly exempts students who are homeschooled from the curfew, the reality is that daytime curfews can often result in harassment of law abiding citizens.

The curfew applies to children ages 6-17 in Colerain Township and will take effect on October 25, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The ordinance as passed can be found on the town’s website (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader).

If you hear of a proposed daytime curfew, HSLDA is available to help you mobilize support with ideas and resources to stand against these unreasonable restraints.
