Harris County Curfew Extended. Tailpipes to Remain Free of Bananas.
If you’re under 16 and want to stay out past midnight, you’re still out of luck even if you’re not in Houston.
Harris County Commissioners Court voted 4-1 today to extend the midnight-6 a.m. curfew for another three years. Here’s County Judge Ed Emmett’s press release on the vote.
The one vote against the proposal came from county commissioner Sylvia Garcia – who didn’t think it went far enough. She wanted the county to extend its curfew to cover all school hours.
Law-enforcement officials have issued 2,500 or so curfew-related citations in the past three years, Emmett says.
So learn to hide better, kids. – Richard Connelly
