Another community on the Jersey shore has implemented a new curfew for juveniles this summer.Wildwood officials voted on Wednesday night and approved a proposal to push up the curfew for teens and children from 1 a.m. to midnight.The rule applies to anyone under the age of 18 and it takes effect next week.
This new curfew comes after teens have been causing trouble in Wildwood.
Over the Fourth of July weekend, city officials say a group of about 60 juveniles was rioting and causing mischief into the early morning hours.
“I mean they were kids being kids. Thank goodness it wasn’t anything super serious, but it was an eye-opener also,” said Wildwood Mayor Pete Byron.
