Curfew in the summer — what is it
Every country in the world has its own curfew in the summer, after which the minor children are unable to freely walk around the city without parents. In today's article we will explain why it is needed, and at what age you can forget about this strict prohibition.
Curfew in the summer is often called the forbidden time. It exists in order to protect the residents of a certain city and to reduce the level of crime and number of victims. Usually curfew must obey, above all, minor children, who (for their own safety) not allowed after the set time appear on the streets. However, curfews may be extended to the General population, that is adults, if the situation calls for it. Typically, such situations are emergency and wartime regime, when to be on the street at night becomes very dangerous. Compliance with the rules of the curfew, the following special units of police and military patrols, go about the city in daytime and at night. If to speak about Russia, then the curfew comes in the summer at 23:00 Moscow time, and in winter at 22:00. After this time, if the police noticed the teenager on the street, his parents could face a large fine for breach of the existing law.
However, not all Russian citizens know about the law about curfew, many have no idea what exactly was going on. That is why very often children (Teens) are victims of all sorts of crimes, robberies and violence. In order to protect loved ones from such troubles, every citizen must know, what age (namely, up to what age) curfew applies, and after some time they can't go outside. First of all, this law is necessary to study parents of minor children, as they are responsible for the fate and well-being of their child. In case of violation of the law is with them in the first place would be to ask law enforcement officers. Next, we take a look at this law and tell what is its essence.
The law of the Russian Federation "On measures for the prevention of child neglect and juvenile delinquency" was officially adopted and published in all the Newspapers of may 20, 2008. According to him, children under 7 years old is strictly prohibited to be in the dark on the street without their parents. This is especially true of such places as clubs, sports and pubs, and other entertainment. Children up to 14 years old to be outside without an adult are permitted until 22:00 Moscow time. This is what happens? If the child is 13.5 years old, he is required to observe a curfew. 14 years — walk where and when you want. After the release of the mentioned law in the light of many of the parents started writing in law enforcement (and forums) that 14 years is absolutely not the age at which a child is vengeance to roam the streets at night. However, the amendments to the law was not. If we talk about this today situation, a curfew in the summer has lost all meaning, because this is the time of year when all the kids want to stay outside as long as possible. What will happen next – time will tell.
