But many of New Jersey's municipalities still have juvenile curfews. And nearly all of the state's 15 most populous municipalities have curfews.
Some begin as early as 9:30 p.m., and end as late as 6 a.m., like the one in Galloway Township. Most, however, restrict unescorted travel by those 17 and younger outside the house between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
Ignore the ordinance, and nothing may happen in some municipalities. The median number of young people reported to have violated curfews is just 10 per year for all municipalities in each of the state's 21 counties. But parents of those who are caught may be issued fines as high as $1,000.
