Oppose The Montgomery County Curfew
Completely over the top: Montgomery County is on the verge of passing a heavy-handed, county-wide curfew. The new law would:
1) Penalize people under the age of 18 who are caught hanging out in public areas after 11 PM on weekdays and 12 AM on weekends -- so no more midnight movie premieres or concerts. Penalties are still being decided, but could range from a fine (of up to possibly $1000) to a felony.
2) Require the parent of a teenager who was detained to attend parenting classes.
3) Hold businesses liable if they have minors in their buildings after curfew hour.
We've been in touch with members of the County Council -- it's clear that constituent pressure will make a huge difference as they deliberate. Just fill out the form at right to send an email to the whole County Council.
