BRIDGEPORT, CT (CBSNewYork) - Hanging out on a street corner at 11:30 at night is no place for a 14 or 15-year-old.

WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau On The Story

In Bridgeport, the city’s fathers are trying to work out a plan, perhaps involving ID cards, to make sure teens 15 and under are home by 11 p.m.

The idea was proposed by councilman Warren Blunt.

“I see it as a way of just gaining control and creating an environment where positive change can take place,” he told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

In fact, Bridgeport already has an 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew on its books, but it has been widely ignored in recent years.

The problem? It lacks strong parental involvement, says once city council member who adds that without that component, she does not believe a city curfew can be effective.
