Some Pitcairn residents say the curfew crackdown is just fine with them.

“I’m for it, 10 p.m. is pretty late,” said Fred Broerman. “I think it should be 9 p.m., 9:30 p.m.”

“They need to be inside doing their homework or something positive instead of being out here,” said Cynthia Brown. “There’s nothing in the street.”

There are exceptions to the curfew. You can be out late for a job, if you’re with an adult or if you have written permission from your parents to be out driving.
